By | 03/04/2023

It’s the start of a new Saturday Challenge over on the Three Room Studio blog!  This week’s theme is WATER!


IusedThree Room Studio water themed shaker cardI used the It’s a Ponderful Life stamp set along with the Believe in Fairies stamp set from Three Room Studio.

I heat embossed my images so that I could add some distress oxides to my background.  I created water, sand, and sky with my distress oxides.  The little star stamps are heat embossed in white while the critters are heat embossed in black.

To add extra sparkle, I added glimmer pen to the water and dragon flies.  I also added lots of white gel pen dots and stars to make it appear even more sparkly.

I used some glitter paper and a stitched scallop frame die from my stash.  The final sparkly touch was the sequins I used to create the shaker element on my card. I selected as many iridescent ones that I could find!

You can actually see the sparkle on the water from the glimmer pen! I love it!

I used a combination of Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavendar for the water.  As I was blending the color on, I was trying to leave some of the background white showing through.  I did the same thing on the sky with Milled Lavendar and Spun Sugar.  The sand is created with Antique Linen and some stippling from Copic markers.

We would love to have you join our challenge this week!  Get details HERE!

Have an amazing day!
