My friend Ann is celebrating her wonderful store’s 30 (THIRTY!!!)  year anniversary! I couldn’t be happier because I think that is truly an amazing accomplishment in our industry!  I’m fortunate to be invited to teach there several times a year and it is such a wonderful store with a fantastic, super-nice staff that *knows* stamping!

Stop in this Saturday, July 15th, for all the fun they have planned and prepare for eye candy galore–the fantastic samples they always have displayed throughout the store always inspire me and get those creative juices flowing!

Congratulations, Ann and to the whole Impress Crew!

THE ENTIRE OCEAN IN A DROP

Mermaid 04

 

I have always loved this quote.  I just free-hand watercolored a (very large) droplet on watercolor paper, spattered a little paint here and there, stamped the sentiment, and then added some copper spot-foiling.

Mermaid 05

A simple one-layer card–again, I used pigment inks.  I was so taken with this color scheme that I think I used it on every single design… If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, eh?!

I just let the stamp tail bleed off the fold/gutter crease of the card.  Because I used pigment inks, I was able to use this pretty glittery Under The Sea embossing powder. (similar:  Mermaid TailsCoastal  )  The day I was shooting, I couldn’t get the camera to pick up the sparkle, which is subtle, but IRL,  a lovely, delicate touch that highlights the detail on the mermaid’s scales…  And, these Seaside Holiday sequins by 28 Lilac Lane ??? *PERFECT* compliment and finishing touch!
