Hello and welcome!!!
It’s time for new stunning goodies from Purple Onion Designs! I’m so excited to introduce you two new fantastic Under The Sea and It’s a Pirate’s Life Collections of rubber stamps both illustrated by super talented Shari Bresciani!
SALE ALLERT! Don’t miss a chance to grab your favorite stamps from Purple Onion Designs at a discounted price! The anniversary sale will end on Monday, August 24th. All stamps will be 25% off (with a few exclusions: Together Stamp Set & Sandy Allnock’s class stamp bundles).
My first card turned out very cheerful and bright! I mixed and matched lots of different stamps from new Under The Sea Collection. I worked on Strathmore Bristol paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. I stamped, heat set and fussy cut with my sharp small scissors all the elements I needed for the scene, leaving a little white edge around.
Here’s the complete list of all the stamps used on this project:
Saltwater Fish Set
Tropical Fish Set (Stripes & Spikes)
Seashells & Starfish
Rocks, Seaweed & Coral
Seaweed, Tubes & Stripe Coral Set
Branch Coral Set
Sea-timents (sentiment) Set
I colored all the stamps with Tombow markers and a small waterbrush from Pentel. The “sea water” rectangle was simply watercolored on a piece of an inexpensive watercolor paper that I have on hands. I use regular watercolors for this element and purposely kept the watercoloring very splotchy and uneven for a fun effect. The sentiment from Sea-timents Set was heat embossed on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Finally I could arrange all the elements on a faux dotted panel die cut from SugarPea Designs Card Front Element Builder II set along with a small slightly offset rectangle window. A few clear droplets gave a finish touch to this project.
As always I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used here: TOMBOW N55, 025, 133, 493, 725, 665, 905, 933.
Hope you like this cute card and new amazing stamps from the Purple Onion Designs’ Under The Sea Collection!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
