June 2024 Release A Colorful Life Designs

This is Agave, which I just love. I wanted to add a sentiment to the card but could not find the one I wanted! So I let it be until I find it. The colours are Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon.

I also did part of the stencil for the inside.

This is "Circle Cactus".

I wanted it to look like it was dark outside with a light coming from somewhere in the distance. My colours are chipped sapphire, wilted violet and shaded lilac.

This stencil is "Fancy Seahorses".

My colours are Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade and a Shimmer Pen. I added splatters using a fan brush, which gave the small splatters.

This card is 5.5" square and called Fishy Frame.

I first applied the inks, being Peacock Feathers and Shabby Shutters on Hammermill cardstock. I then stenciled on the texture paste in opaque matte and set it aside to dry.

Once dry I attached the piece to a Neenah cardbase, then did the inside using the opposite in colours, also on a piece of Hammermill card. and stamped the sentiments using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne.

I used Shabby Shutters and Peacock Feathers. I also added texture using a Gelly Roll Glaze pen on the Whales. The sentiment is another older stamp from Joy Crafts.

This stencil is called "Koi".

I stenciled the fish using Ripe Persimmon, then added Concord and 9th letters which I coloured using a B18 Copic marker.

I will add a sentiment when I decide on who to send it to.

This card is using "Make A Splash" and "Whales Swimming". I used Tumbled Glass and Hickory Smoke and added some Nuvo Gold Shimmer pen to the whale.

To stamp the sentiment I used VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

On this card I used one of the "Fancy Seahorses", which I coloured up and fussy cut. I added the background using the stencil "Orderly Waves" in Salvaged Patina.

I glued the Seahorse in place, then did the inside of the card using another Seahorse along with the Orderly Waves stencil..
I love these little Seahorses.

This is "Plenty of Fish" and "Layered Seaweed". 

I used Hickory Smoke, Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron. I stamped the sentiments in VersaFine Clair Nocturne. Below is inside the card.

This is my last card today. For this card I am using "Swirling Droplets", My colours are tumbled glass, broken china, mermaid lagoon and uncharterd mariner. I added clear droplets to the card along with the sentiments stamped using VersaFine Clair ink in Warm Breeze.
