Inky Thoughts

Hello, hello! Samantha back with another card that I created for the newest challenge over at the Clever Dexter blog.

This month’s optional color palette is peach, apricot, sage, gold, and yellow. The theme is “Hello Summer”.

Today I’m using the squid image from the Salty Kisses stamp set from Stampers Delights.

To begin I colored this cute little squid in using Spectrum Noir Triblend markers.

Using a stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs I die cut a piece of patterned paper from the ‘A Perfect Summer’ 6×6 paper pad by Echo Park. I matted two pieces of blue cardstock to one another and added them on top of my patterned paper before adding the entire thing to a blue A2 sized note card.

I used a circle die from the Waffle Flower Nesting Circles Die set to cut out my sentiment and also cut out a same sized circle from orange cardstock. I offset my sentiment circle over this and added it to the lower right of the card.

Next I applied foam tape behind my squid and added him to the upper left of the card. To finish it off I applied three clear gems to look like bubbles.

Be sure to head on over to the Clever Dexter blog and enter the latest challenge. I can’t wait to see you over there!

Until next time,
