Picnic by the Sea!

Good morning everyone!! Whoohoo...it's Friday and the start of a long weekend...I hope all of you have some wonderful plans for Memorial Day!!! I am going to have 3 of my grandbabies this weekend and my DH is going fishing...what's up with that??? Anyway....

The Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast today is to use circles. Wendy also limited us to use images from only one stamp set. I decided to make a bowl of fruit this morning...reminds me of a picnic!! The Clear Dollar Stamps Fruity Fun images were stamped with craft inks and embossed with clear ep. This also qualifies for the Stampin B's challenge to use a border punch...check, circle...check, leaf or branch....they are small but check.....2 or more brads....check!!!

Ways to Use It Challenge

The Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast yesterday was to find ways to stamp the same image more than once. ...I really had to think for this one!!! I decided to use the Rubbernecker shells and sentiment to create a little underwater scene...this also qualifies for last weeks DDC challenge hosted by Fran (Francie G.) to make a card featuring water. You can see all the other DDC cards here. If you want to play along be sure to add DDC to the keywords section of you upload.

The background was created using Sherry's Wrinkle Free Distressing technique first by stamping the images with Distress Embossing Ink and embossing with clear ep. Then I used Pine Needles and Peeled Paint Ranger Distress inks as shown in Sherry's tutorial and then misted with Perfect Pearls after the ink was set with the heat tool..


The shells were again stamped on the Prism Papers, cutout, covered with Glossy Accents and dusted with glitter. The ribbon finishes it off.
