As you know, I resigned from the DeNami Design Team but as soon as I saw the theme for this months challenge I knew I had to participate! What better way to celebrate the summer with a Summer Splash blog hop! The hop starts NOW July 14th at 6am PST and you have until 11:59pm PST July 15th to leave comments on all of the blogs to be eligible for a prize! Yep, DeNami is giving away TWO $20 gift certificates to random commenters on along the hop!
Before I show you what I made, a little housekeeping! You should have come here by way of Ruza Rebel’s blog, Ruza’s Craft Corner! Now onto the card…
I used one of my FAVORITE DeNami Design stamps, the Surfboard Trio stamp. I’ve been on a bit of a watercolor kick lately and really wanted to keep the card simple to let the surfboards stand out.
I started off by embossing the Surfboard Trio stamp with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Using my Derwent Inktense pencils and my Tim Holtz Detail Waterbrush and colored in all three surfboards.
I’ve been using Inktense pencils for years now and the thing I love most about them is how VIBRANT the colors are! Like any watercolor paint or pencil, the more water you add the lighter the color but with these, it doesn’t take a whole lot of water to activate the ink and just look at the colors!
When creating my card I opted NOT to stamp a sentiment on it, this way I can use it for a birthday card or hello card or whatever the occasion may be, all I’ll need to do is stamp the appropriate sentiment when/if I need one!
Now that you’ve seen today’s card, just a quick reminder to leave a comment to be entered to win.
And now, I’ll send you off to your next stop…
