What does Summertime fun mean to me?  I’d have to say yes to many of the following – spending time by the seaside, foreign travel, camping in the great outdoors or simply enjoying time in my garden?  Besides camping I have done all of these things this summer! This ATC holder is definitely inspired by my love of being in my garden.

 

Two, Nautically

Hi! I’m here with a quick post with two bright stenciled cards.

First up, I have card using the ARTplorations Chevron Crazy stencil.

I printed with the inked up stencil with blue watercolor paint, printed the background and then stenciled with Gelatos.

I used a STAMPlorations stamp from the Explore set.

This card was inspired by Becca Cruger’s Birthday Bash Mood board. Happy Birthday, Becca!

Second, I have another card using the Chevron Crazy stencil.

IMG_9870edited

I did some reverse stenciling and used the inked up stencil from my first card in this post. I squashed the inky stencil onto the mixed media paper, covered with a bit of scrap paper and rubbed the back of the stencil. Then I stenciled black ink into the negative spaces and heat embossed with clear embossing powder multiple times.

 The seashell is a digital image from STAMPlorations. For now, I’ve left this without a sentiment. I’d like to play this card at Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog’s Challenge: Nautical/By The Sea.
