Be Unique


Today i have another card from my stack of cards!! This one was so fun to make, i got to get a little inky and use a new stencil!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps

I placed the stencil over some water color paper and used 3 blue/green colors from Papertrey Ink. I added the ink with an felt ink applicator, started with the lightest color and added the darker colors to the bottom.

Next i stamped the fish images from The Alley Way Stamps Castaways stamp set on water color paper. I colored them with distress markers, then cut them out.

I stamped and embossed the Be Unique sentiment on vellum card stock, trimmed it into a strip and added it to my card base. Last i added the fishes with foam dots!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

  5. What a fabulous stencil, Dana - and such a cool way to transform it into water! As for those fishes - seriously! They are adorable! The angler fish is charming with his little 'headlight' and teeth! Be unique...LOVE this!!
