Hello and welcome
We’re back with the first challenge for 2022 over at Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies – January . As always, anything goes in this challenge. So, I hope you’ll find time in your busy life to join in the fun this month!
I had lots of fun playing with these new to me images from Hero Arts – .Sea You stamp set.
I started by cutting 2 circles using Spellbinders Circles dies from a panel and then drew these same circles on the back panel. This gave me the positions to stamp the fish and coral as well as some small circles from SSS – Lots of dots stamp set, for bubbles.
The images were then Distress Ink watercoloured and the pencil lines then removed.
The die cut front had some raised paste added through the circle stencil.
A light blue hair gel was added inside a small self seal bag that was then nd wrapped in tape to ensure no leakage.
This was then attached behind the circle die cut panel.
Another die cut circle had the sentiments stamped – SSS – Circle Sayings set and Elizabeth Crafts – Ahoy sentiments set.
Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!
I look forward to seeing what you create this month!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I love to read your comments.
Have a good day, stay safe and wishing you a very Happy New Year!
