Something Old...new...borrowed....blue






Welcome to our first ever collaboration week with Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko! We've shared all of our toys on both sides, so be prepared for Endless Possibilities! Three prize packages are available, each containing one set of each of these inks and stencils/dies. Just leave comments on each post of each day this week (June 9th - June 13th) for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on Tuesday, June 17th!



Imagine Crafts New StazOn Pads from Tsukineko


Stencils and Dies Prize Package



Here's my creation for today:



I created the background by dropping several colors of Deco Art acrylic paint on my creative pallette and used the roller to spread it around.  Then I pressed a panel of white cardstock on the pallette and set it aside to dry.


I used translucent paste to emboss the Large Scales over the dried design.


When it dried I stenciled on Open Fish with white embossing paste and let it dry.


Here's how it looked before I sponged on the neon paint.


I sponged on the orange and coral Neon inks from Imagine Crafts.

I even colored my ribbon with the ink!


This card works for this months challenge-something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue too!  It's blue...the High Hopes stamp I used for the sentiment is old, the fish stencil is new, and the card is blue.  Three out of four ain't bad!





Just Imagine the possibilities of what everyone else has created!
