hi

Good morning my crafty friends!! I have a card to share today :)


This card is for the current challenge over at the Impression-Obsession blog-Summer fun in the sun and water challenge. I used the IO Cover-A-Card Bubbles CC026 and IO Cover-A-Card Funky CC045.

The background was created by applying various blue and turquoise Copic Markers directly to the stamp and then spritzing with rubbing alcohol, and then QUICKLY stamping the image down before the rubbing alcohol dries...don't blink!

I am also going to enter this card into Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Use Your Favorite Tool. Once again I reached for my dies :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day...Thanks for visiting! Hugs,
TRace
