Escape the Ordinary

Hi friends!  I love escaping the ordinary.  How about you?  Leave me a message and tell me how you love to escape the ordinary.  Me?  I like to go to our boat and jump off the side into the cold water.

This was a very fun background that I created for Technique Junkies Framed Seascape stamp and Ocean Frame Sentiments.

As always, you can use my code below to get 10% off your shopping cart.

Steps to making my card:

  1.  Cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of watercolour paper
  2.  Smoosh  ink onto a silicone mat in a big area and spritz with water.  I used 3 colours of distress inks.
  3. Dip watercolour paper into your inked area and smoosh around.
  4. Dry with heat gun.
  5. Dip watercolour paper lightly onto beaded areas of ink and heat with heat gun.
  6. Repeat steps 2 to 5 until you are happy with your background.  My background was created by repeating these steps four times.
  7. When background is dry, ink Framed Seascape onto your background with VersaMark and sprinkle with white embossing powder.  Heat set.
  8.  Using a sentiment from Ocean Frame Sentiments, ink up your stamp with VersaMark and sprinkle with gold embossing powder.  Heat set.
  9.  Die cut an anchor or other sea die, and ink up the diecut with VersaMark and sprinkle gold embossing powder over top.  Heat set.  Now it looks like a real charm and not paper.  Just a little trick that will surprise the recipient of your card.
Thank you for stopping by!

Fabulous job on that background gives a great under the water feel, the embossing in white looks great against it and I love how you did the sentiment and anchor in gold to tie them together!!

Girl this is beautiful, and you are making me want “more” new stamps. This was already on my wish list and your post just sealed the deal.
