Sparkling on the Waves

Hello there,

I'm swinging past your screens to share another make for the amazing Spectrum Noir Education Design Team

Seriously, the Spectrum Noir Blog has so many tutorials, step by steps, downloadable charts for you to take a peek at to help get the most out of your Spectrum Noir products

Nuff said!  Well almost! lol I start out saying I'm not gonna ramble on, but I always do!

So pic time

Card Designed by Sandie Gough
But the real heros are the artists and suppliers:

Image: Creative Expressions, Designer Lisa Horton 
Blue Topaz, Moonlight,  Sea Breeze, Sand Dune, Teacup
(Technique – colored small area’s of the waves, then change color, and repeat. 
Effect – random color for a natural look)
Crafter’s Companion – Matt Black Card, Water Color Card, White Hammered Card
Diamond Press – Starter set, Sentiment die,  stamps on tag
Coordinations card – shattered pad

Collal 3D, All Purpose and Tacky Glue

I adore this collection of stamps and matching MDF, although I haven't used the MDF pieces, just the stamps alone make an awesome mascaline card.

The sea/waves stamp has been repeat stamped a fair few times to get the size of background I needed but it was so simple to line up.

The starter set of dies with The Diamond Press are just awesome.
I love it when I can die cut a sentiment from the backing papers

Simple layering
Thank you so much for stopping by and please do leave me a comment before you go.  It would be ace if you could click to follow my blog so you can take a peek at my next project!
