B is for Beach ... plus some splatter cards...

My blogger friend Jo is one of the  Designers over at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.... and when I saw her card for this week's challenge (B for Beach)it took my fancy as I knew I had to perfect digi stamp to use.

My digi image and it's corresponding sentiment are from Bugaboo.  I combined the two onto one panel.  I coloured using Copic markers - so very basic colouring.  I made the PP that I used for my base layer.  I saw a technique over at Splitcoaststampers - to used waterbase inks - Altenew Warm Sunshine, Paper Bag and Distress ink  Fossilised Amber- spritz of water and a credit card!  I think that it makes a beautiful sandy looking background.   I added three drops of gold liquid pearls to finish off. 

Plus I have two cards I made on Sunday for the Hero Arts Flickr Group challenge.  My friend Kim in Western Australia, challenged us to use splatters on our projects.  I did two sessions... each about 50-55 mins

My first card used Hero Arts Brush Stroke  stamp set which has a few splatter stamps.  I used Neon inks.  The sentiment is the die from the Hello Stamp and die set with a sentiment from the set. 

And my second card is more elegant...

I stamped the Antique Rose stamp onto some watercolour paper and used some Derwent Inktense pencils to colour.  I then used some gold ink, green and red inks to splatter drops over my card.  I then used a big sentiment stamp to finish off.

Thanks for stopping by

You're in the zone, Dawn--wonderful cards! Wish I could use my Liquid Pearls like you did! I have 6 beautiful colors but they never end up looking that good, so there they sit. The beachy background is really neat looking--gotta check out that technique!

What beautiful cards Dawn - all so very different too - I must say I had a giggle at the Stella one :-). Love the neon ink splatters on the second card, and the ever so gentle ink splatters on the third.
