Sunday Seashore

 For the background I stamped Mike's seaweed in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake cardstock.  Then I sponged on some Soft Suede dots with a stencil and added some translucent embossing paste.  Then I mounted on Pacific Point cardstock, added the ribbon (Pacific Point), some burlap and some Pacific Point brads.  I added Mike's small sea horse and sea star (both stamped with Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut out with the matching die cut) and the sentiment was cut out of Pacific Point cardstock.

The sketch is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch (#275).

Stamps: Michael Strong (Mini Creatures, Cloisonné Seahorse, Cloisonné Sea Turtle/Seaweed)

Happy Father's Day card

My dad is really into wine so most of the Father's Day cards I make for him involve some form of grape.  This one is no exception.  I stamped the leaves in green (Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive) and then misted a bit to get them smeary and then stamped again overtop in green.  I did the same with the grapes (Dusty Concord).  I then stamped a script stamp in Tea Dye and misted a bit.  Finally I used a stencil and sprayed with some Antique Linen.  I also sponged around the sides with Antique Linen and stamped the sentiment in Tea Dye.  My friend Laura had given me some fibers a while back and they were perfect for this!  I also attached a grape leaves die cut.
