School of Fish!

Good morning!
I am knee deep in getting my class room set up this week.  Our open house is next week, so I have to get prepared! This is always an exciting time of the year when summer for me winds down and a new school year starts. :)
Today's card is still celebrating summer with a variety of aquatic life! I love Whimsy Stamp's new set, Mermaid Escape.  I have several cards using the mermaid as the focal point, that I will share later, but I love using small images to create a fun background. I randomly stamped each creature and used the bubble stamp, included in this set, to fill in any gaps.
I used Copic markers to color all of the images.  The background panel was done with water colors. I adhered all of the layers using Crafty Foam Tape for dimension. I added a silk ribbon and a few gems. 
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today!

Floral Birthday!

Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend!  
I have a card today that uses one of my favorite sets from Whimsy Stamps, called, Beaucoup Bouquet.  I don't know what it is about flowers, but I am drawn to them. 
I did a bit of no line water coloring stamping the image first with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  Once the image was dry, I splattered white acrylic paint over it.  I then stamped the sentiment with Memento black ink
I layered the image over several pieces of card stock using Crafty Foam Tape.  The polka dot paper is from the 6 x 6 Pretty Pastels paper pack.  I tied an orange bow at the top too! 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
