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.
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?
Here's a list of all the products I used to make this card:
And don't forget to add a few MINI SEQUINS to give your card that little bit of bling!
