Control Freaks Blog Hop - New Catalog Happiness

  CF Header

Welcome to the Control Freaks blog hop - our theme for June is NEW CATALOG HAPPINESS.  I'm super excited to show you what I made.

The Sea of Texture bundle from Stampin' Up! is one of my favorites! You'll find all the details for this card and ordering links if you'd like to get this bundle on my blog. Just click on the photo. www.AStampAbove.com

I love the fact that the SEA OF TEXTURES BUNDLE is super fun with the little octopus that I've affectionately named FRANK and you can also make an elegant card like I did here. Isn't it the best when a stamp set has so much versatility? 

I chose a watercolor wash background. Watercolor paper is the best paper to use for this technique. I wet it down with my Aqua Painter and then pick up some color from the lid of my Pool Party ink pad and distribute it around. Once that's dried I took my Aqua painter and tapped it on my finger to get droplets of water to splatter on the surface to create almost a tie die effect. I almost forgot...I used Crumb Cake ink on the bottom 1/4 of my layer under the greeting and sand dollars.

I thought the DETAILED TRIO PUNCH was a perfect little accent for the corner of my greeting layer. And OMGosh - those sand dollars are the BOMB! I sponged them with Crumb Cake ink - so pretty right?

A very delicate card Kelly, I have to be honest I had to google what a sand dollar was I did not know. That is so, so bad being that I was a teacher/HT and that but I had never heard of a sand dollar before. When I googled them, I saw instantly the resemblance to the SU stamp. Thank you for sharing this project with us crafters. :O)

There seems to be issues with today's blog hop posts. I can access Debbie's blog, but cannot scroll down to see the project. This is not the first blog post I have had a problem with today.

Very pretty - loving the gold sand dollars! Very beachy scene!

I have to agree with Donna, I can see everything about Kelly's card....but only the top half of Debbie's post....cannot see her project at all.

Thanks!
