The current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Glitter It could not have come at a better time! They are featuring Wink of Stella products and lately I've been wondering what the difference is between their clear glitter brush tip marker and my old fashioned Sakura clear Gelly Roll pen:) For those of you on the "Wink Train" I would love to hear your thoughts on whether I need to add this marker to my arsenal!
I dug out a REALLY OLD stamp to create a birthday card for my mom to give to my oldest brother. I really couldn't allow her to spend $4.99 at the card shop when I knew I could re-create something similar (and better!):
I bought the ship stamp years ago from a local woman who sold wood block stamps out of her house. I embossed it twice so I could cut out two of the sails to pop them up for some dimension. I created the "waves" by using the seagull stamp -upside down- from the Lawn Fawn set "Float My Boat". Sentiment was computer generated and colored in with Stampin' Up so saffron ink. The halo was die cut from SU so saffron cs using Cricut Create a Critter II cart. Both the sentiment and halo were glittered up using my trusty Sakura clear Gelly Roll pen.
Other Supplies Used: Stampin' Up real red and brilliant blue cs, SU brilliant blue, bashful blue and baked brown sugar ink (with a blender pen), SU paper piercing tool, Papertrey ink white cs, Cuttlebug Anchors Aweigh embossing folder, Creative Impressions natural twine
