Dropping you a Line

>> Monday, July 24, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Hope you had a great weekend! Today I am on my way to VA to visit with family and celebrate some birthdays. It's always fun to celebrate with family. My card today features two new stamps from DRS Designs: Dropping you a line greeting and the Silhouette Palm Trees. I just can't get enough of this new palm tree image. It is so fun to use!

I started with some watercolor paper, stamped the silhouette palm trees with Versafine Onyx ink, heat embossed with clear EP and then used various TH Distress Oxide inks to create the sky and water. Once the inks dried I stamped the greeting with Versafine Onyx ink. The proud fisherman was stamped into white CS with Memento black ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut. The frame was die cut with nesties and sponged with the same distress inks as the sky. Before attaching it to the card base I stamped the fishing pole with Verafine Onyx ink. The fisherman and his catch were added with foam squares.

Here's a look at the inside of the card:

The big mouth bass was stamped with distress ink and the Good things come greeting was stamped with Versafine Onyx ink.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out all the new images at DRS Designs.
