Beachy Paradise Palms...TGIF Challenge 382!

It's that time again!  As a designer on the TGIF Design Team...we have assigned weeks that we participate in the challenges.  This week actually isn't my assigned week.  But once you see the challenge...I think you will know why I had to participate!!!  Haha.  Without further is my card!

Now can you tell why I just had to participate?!  Haha.  It is a theme challenge all about the BEACH!  Yes! Please!  Haha.

Just a few quick photos & info! 
  • I used the Artistically Inked Stamp Set in a few ways on this card.  I did a watercolor wash in a few colors, but on the bottom...I used one of the stamps from that stamp set and stamped over where I watercolored.  This is subtle, but added a little depth to the "water" on the bottom.
  • I also used the Artistically Inked Stamp Set for the sun! is a "flower" technically speaking.  But I embossed it in gold for a fun sun!
  • That fun detailed edge is from the Palms Dies!  I just adhered half of it behind the side of the focal point and I LOVE the detail that adds!  I cut it from the Brushed Metallic 
  • Hard to tell in photos, so just trust me on this one 😂, but I used the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush all over the watercolor wash to make it all sparkly.  It is so pretty in real life!  😍  Especially out in the sunshine.

I hope you enjoy this card! Thank you so much for visiting!  Now you just need to head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to participate in this weeks challenge!  Can't wait to see what you make! Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!

I love your card so much with these palm trees against the wonderful rainbow color wash! I can see the wink of stella on one of the photos too! I bet all the glimmer looks even more amazing in person. And what a creative way to use the Artistically Inked set. Thanks for the inspiration.

Technique Tuesday With Custom Striped Accents!

One of my assignments on Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team is to do share some fun techniques.  My first one was shared at the end ...
