Update and Challenge

Did you think I was posting the big news?? Nope, not yet! I am waiting for the announcement on "HER" blog, then I will share with you the details of my new design team position!! I am very excited to be a part of this new team, the 'owner' is awesome!!

So, until then, here's my submission for todays SCS color challenge of Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss. I FINALLY mounted this stamp set this weekend and was itchin' to use it! These hot colors don't exactly say water, to say the least, but there are so many bright and exotic fish out there, so I decided to make my fish Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie. I used Kiwi Kiss for the seaweed at bottom. I added a boat image at the top of the card by using the bottom portion of the UFO in the By Air stamp set, works perfect, in my opinion!!

No card is complete without ribbon, so I added some of that and a little eyelet-embellishment and I am done! I think doing these challenges has helped me get faster when making cards! And for that, I am seriously grateful!! Click here to see MY GALLERY with all of my cards to view at once!

Here's the detail shot of the image stamped for the sentiment. I used Soft Sky on the entire stamp and then went over the sentiment with Not Quite Navy craft ink so that it would be really easy to read. Doing this gave the fish a watery-shadow!
Don't forget to comment on the Wednesday Winner! Just one more day until the big draw!!

Enjoy your Tuesday!!

Cute, cute, cute! Great way to use a stamp creatively for something it WASN'T intended!
