Summer Daisy Fun -

I had so much fun playing to make this card. I put the instructions below.  I hope you enjoy it.
Tombow marker flowers
 Scrapbook Adheasives
1. Stamped image and colored them using Copics on one card and Tombow markers on the other. You pick how you want to color yours (you can even use your colorburst as watercolor, but i didn't have any the right colors).
2. On quality watercolor paper, I sprinkled just a bit three colors of Colorburst. Spritzed with water and swished around with a paint brush. LET DRY or use heat gun to speed it up.
3. Dropped a few drops of water onto the dry background and let set for a few mintues before lifting with papertowel.
4. Stamp greeting using versamark and white embossing powder.  Heat with heat gun.
5. Sprinkle a bit of Stampendous Chunky white embossing powder onto the card randomly and heat from below.
6. Assemble card using Scrapbook adhesives mounting squares.
7. Glue onto cardstock and card is ready to add a greeting inside and mail to a friend.

Awesome Ocean Background &new Stampendous stamps!

WOW! Have you seen the new ocean stamps by Stampendous!  I am over the top thrilled with them.  Not to mention the embossing powder technique that I am addicted to for the background.  Fran showed it to me at CHA and I have just been itching to try it a million times (and have done it a million times).  It's is so fun!  Check out the short video here on how to get this coolest look!   These two sets each come with matching die cuts so you won't have to fussy cut if you don't want to!  Toot Toot!

Ok... so here are the step outs.  First I used a hot plate that I had hanging around taking up room in my kitchen cabinet.  You might find a pancake griddle at Goodwill or thrift store that will work great!  For easy clean up cut a small piece of your craft mat to lay on top.  My little circle one does not have room for a mat. 

First lay your chipboard on hotplate and sprinkle with embossing powders.
Second add a bit of clear embossing powder over your sand to use as glue to hold on the Fragments I used for my sandy ocean floor. Use any color you wish, I prefer the rose or taupe. If the Fragments don't stick, sprinkle on a bit more clear embossing powder.

Here is a quick video to show the steps.  It is so fun, you will be glad you tried it!  Have fun and please share your project with me!
