Hi everyone,

DRS Designs is just about to release some new images that you are going to love! My card today features the new Silhouette Palm Trees (288P) and I just know this is going to be a favorite of mine.

I started by stamping the line of palm trees (288P) with Versafine Onyx black ink onto water color paper, embossed it with clear embossing powder and then sponged on various TH Distress Oxide inks for the sea and sky. Once the inks dried I stamped the Sand, snow, water lines with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with detail white embossing powder. The little seal and dolphin were stamped with Memento Black ink onto white CS, colored with Copics and fussy cut. I used a craft knife to cut an opening along the top of the waves so I could tuck the dolphin and seal into the water. I really liked how this turned out and was so excited I just had to create another card with this new image.

This card uses the same inks for the sponged background. I started with a strip of paper, stamped the silhouette palm trees (228P) with Versafine Onyx black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Once the embossing cooled I sponged in the sky and sea and layered the strip onto black CS before attaching it to the larger panel which was also sponged with the same distress oxide inks. Once dried, I stamped the greeting with Versafine Onyx ink and then attached everything to a black card base.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to head over to the DRS Designs on line store to check out the new images that will be released in just a couple of days!

Happy Stamping,
