June 19 (Monday)

Summer makes me think of the beach… and tubing… and the sun. This card wraps all those things into one fun little package! Note- The digi is from http://freedeariedollsdigistamps.blogspot.com

I really like the AAA Cards blog and challenges. The current one is really a challenge for me, mainly because I don’t like to get my hands dirty when I stamp. And… well, making ink resist cards usually requires sponging, which is always a messy task, at least for ME!
So, for this card, I decided to skip the sponging and instead used my brayer and rainbow pad (two tools I have that are gathering dust). Stamped and embossed a starburst image with sparkly clear powder onto glossy cardstock, brayered several coats of the rainbow ink over the image and liked the subtle image that appeared. Added the sentiment and then some pink rhinestones to up the bling factor. (Note- Sentiment is from http://paulaposts.blogspot.com/2013/02/vcmp-challenge-5-free-digi-sentiment.html)
