Hello, I have a quick CAS card for you today using these adorable penguins from MFT. I started off using this fun paper from Stampin Up and some Oxide Inks to get started. What I love about this paper, as you can see, it has a pattern. So as you blend the inks the cool pattern reveals itself. I used both Broken China and Tumbled Glass to achieve my pool color that I was looking for. My photo doesn’t show the variations of color very well. I decided to stamp the sentiment directly on the paper and it turned out better than I expected. As I took a tissue over the sentiment after it dried, part of the sentiment came off too. I kinda think it looks as if the greeting is on the bottom of the pool. I used the white corners to mimic the steps or shelf seating you see around real swimming pools. I used Prisma colored pencils with my images. My colors and idea for this card started with The Color Throwdown.
I hope you can escape the world a little today by being creative, Nanc’

It does look like the sentiment was written on the bottom of the pool, Nancy. That little penguin is happy just floating around.

Before I read your post, I too, thought it looked like the sentiment was under water! I thought maybe you had stamped the circles on top – neat to think the paper was already embossed. Love your card!

Thanks so much Laurie! It’s the coolest paper and it comes in so many different patterns. I have no idea why they would stop making it, they only had it for a short time.
