I had so much fun with this month's kit...LOVE the nautical theme! Here's a peek at both of my cards that I made especially for today's hop:
First up is my shaker card! Isn't the shaker mix by Lucy absolutely fabulous? I'll start from the bottom of my card and work my way up! I used Midnight Layering paper that I stamped the Irregular Grid Bold Prints in Wet Cement Shadow Ink.
I used Mint Julep + Tide Pool on the Jelly Fish. The sentiment has been stamped with Wet Cement. I did a quick watercolor wash with my Peerless watercolors. The seam binding ribbon is from my stash.
Next up is a Go with the Flow card:
For those of you that have been following me for awhile, yes, I've warmed up to purple! I used the Waves Stencil in Pool. I used Intense Black for the sentiment. I stamped the Octo and the Turtle with the Dolphin Ombre pad...isn't it AWESOME?
I used Floral Mix Layering papers for the strips on the side.
