OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I stamped on watercolor paper that had been colored with powdered Pigment product called Color Burst by Ken Oliver.   I stamped the Mondo Hydrangea with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP then cut it out with the Mondo Hydrangeo die by Ellen Hutson.  The leaf was also colored with Color Burst by Ken Oliver and heat embossed with Gold EP.  The sentiment is from the Painted  Greetings stamp set by AltENew.  It was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in black on yellow vellum and cut out with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Pennants (these are very hard to find, Oldies but Goodies).  On the base of the card I embossed the frame with Stamp Edge Frame SSD111330 by Simon Says Stamp.

Another Journal cover.  The stamps are from a company that has gone out of business, but can still be found on ebay and other sites, or if interested in gently used stamps I might be talked into selling some of mine.

The turtles are from Shello Stamp Set from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop.  The sea shells are from Mark’s Finest Papers Stamp Shop called Silly Shells.  The birds are from Birds  of the Orient.

The sun was stamped on tissue and applied with Mod Podge.  The turtles and sea shells were stamped & colored with Copics on white cardstock and fussy cut and applied with Mod Podge. The boat was stamped on the watercolor paper and heat embossed with brown EP before coloring the sand with a watercolor wash.

The water texture was created by applying blue tissue paper over and around the turtles to create water movement.
