Bouncing Bloom FMS88 & CCMC254

Have you ever tried bouncing Stampin' Write Markers onto an image to give splashes of colour?

It is such a fun technique and I have done it before with Blooming with Kindness, in shades of pink, but I don't think I blogged about that one. It was for an upline's Big O birthday a few months ago.

I thought it might be a good technique to try with the challenge colours at Create with Connie and Mary, but of course the Pool Party and Island Indigo did turn slightly green mixed with the So Saffron, which was my base colour.

I actually like it, I hope you do too!

It's the Finishing touches edgelit on the left side, so pretty and lacy and a So Saffron button with Linen Thread on the right. The panel has been mounted on Island Indigo card for some definition, and popped up on dimensionals.

 The sketch is from Jen Mitchell at  Freshly Made Sketches , and because I know they prefer fresh, clean cards I've aimed for that effect.

The greeting is from One In A Million and the front reads 'You mean SO much to SO many people." and inside it reads, "(One of them is me)". It was already out on my work table because my son came over yesterday to make a birthday card for his wife, and he used both stamps on the inside, with a Happy Birthday on the outside.

2013 Thursday Challenges-017

It has been such a busy day for me today with the Stampin' Up! retirement list to get out to my customers and my own order for items from the NEW catalogue to compile and send off. If you would like your own copy of the catalogue, I can arrange for a copy to be sent to you for $9.95 (Australia only). If you have ordered from me in the past year, I will be happy to supply a complementary copy.

Have a great weekend,
