AEI♥U Embellishments Challenge

I'm joining in once again on the Avery Elle Challenge Blog.

On the first challenge, my card was picked for honorable mention! Little ol' me was doing the "GIT-R-DONE" dance. Heck...maybe one of these days I might win! Wouldn't THAT be cool! Blue skies are ahead! LOL! It's really fun...and it get's me usin' my stuff.

This time the challenge is Embellishments.

NOT like I don't have any embellishments hangin' around in my crafty stash! *wink*

I totally consider glitter an embellishment...but I tossed in a cool epoxy dot on the sun for good measure. Perfect!

I used 2 Avery Elle Stamp Sets - Happy Camper and Knotty. The panel with the strips is stamped using Sea Glass Pigment Ink. Turned out great!  I stamped the water with Aquamarine Pigment Ink -- but to make it a lighter shade, I stamped it off once on a scratch paper before stamping on the card. The sun is stamped with Mimosa and Fizz Pigment Inks. Cloud are stamped with Pure White Pigment Ink on Aquamarine cardstock.

I love how this turned out. So fresh and clean looking! Do you wanna play the challenge? Get all the details HERE.

Have fun...I did :)

Dude, you know how much I adore this - you freakin' ROCKED each and every detail! Luckily I got to watch "the master" at work while this was being created. I watched . . . and learned.
