Week 6 One Layer Card - "Off the Edge"

Hi again... it's my second post today... and what an exciting day it's been for me with Joanna Sheen launching my latest designs for rubber stamps called 'Tales of the Ocean'.
Although I made a total of 16 sample cards for her to share, I find I still have lots more ideas in my head for different ways to use them on cards... so I decided to use them for this weeks challenge over on the 'Less is More' Blog... week 6 for one layer card with stamping off the edge..

I have made two cards for this challenge.. here they are
As you can see I have used one stamp for the image and one sentiment stamp.. I stamped the pink seahorse first... then the black and then the last one was straight after each black to give more of a grey look. I added glamour dust for some sparkle on the bubbles.. I think it looks quite nice.

Here's my second card along the same lines
For this card I stamped the pink border first using the fossil corner stamp... but looking at it now, I realise that it would have been better to stamp the shells first and then mask them and then add the background.. I will next time... but my daughter says that she actually likes the way the pink peeps through the shells... oh well, maybe it's a case of beauty is in the eye of the beholder Lol... oh yes... I added a lovely clear glittery foil to the starfish and on the greeting after applying a glue pen on the shells and a glue runner over the words...

Thanks for visiting today...
I can't blog until Tuesday now as I am going into hospital tomorrow for a hernia repair operation..
See you then
Hugs

  2. Good luck with your operation - I'm still debating which sea stamps to go with first, I'm veering towards the one with the starfish and crab on.xxx

  3. These are fabulous Sylvie... you are clever!
    I don;t know which is my favourite, but I'm rather drawn to the sea horses!
    My granddaughter would love both of these as she loves sea creatures.
    Thanks for joining us!
    All good wishes for you trip to hospital!

    Both your cards are beautiful. Congratulations on the new stamps, you're right to be excited.

    I love seahorses, they've always fascinated me. The bubbles on the card look great too.
