It's time again for another release! Geez, the weeks are just flying by! Can you believe it's almost August!? Because it's still summertime, why not beat the heat with some of our new images that know all about keeping cool...
First up is our new Dolphin Set! Yes, you get two dolphin images in this set!! Woo Hoo! Here's some samples I made for the stores...
I immediately thought "shaker card" when I started planning my samples for this release. I guess the microbeads remind me of bubbles and the acetate reminds me of a tank. You'll be seeing the same type of cards over the next few days.
Ok... i know my flash is distracting in this one.. SORRY! I need photography lessons. Anyway, here's one of the first ones I made...
For all of the backgrounds, I used watercolor paper and sprayed them using my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. It was fun playing with all the different colors. On the next card, I decided to try embossing the acetate to see what type of effect it would give. I chose the large dots since it also reminded me of bubbles. It's hard to see with the flash, but I also stamped "You're a great friend" using a Hero Arts stamp.
I guess I feel like these little dolphins are friends and are talking to each other. Now I'm not one who normally likes dolphins, but I loved this squished down version a lot! I begged my sister to draw up some sea creatures and was so happy that she made them look like babies! Here I embossed the acetate using an old favorite. I think it's a cuttlebug waves embossing folder- one of the first ones I ever bought! All the microbeads are by Martha Stewart Crafts.
Another note about our new friends... I sized them so that you can use them with our mermaid stamps too! I think ever maid needs friends right?
So do you want a set of your very own? Well, here's your chance to win one! Here's the rules:
1) leave a comment on THIS POST by 07/31/13 11:59pm HST; and
2) tell me if you have a favorite sea creature. I'm really not sure if I have one. Personally I think i would get scared if I got too close! You would totally laugh at me if you saw me at Hanauma Bay!
