My Michael Strong sea turtle stamp
has finally crawled into my mail box.
This calls for a celebration!
I have one extra stamp (in the package there
are two stamps: the turtle and the seaweed)
for a give-away

On Saturday August 3 I will announce the winner.
Now here is my first turtle card.
I made it for a sketch challenge
on the Friday Sketch challenge Blog.
Wondering about some of the techniques I used?
Here follows a description:
The background of the card is made with alcohol ink
and I used the colors citrus, pool and stream.
If you like this, but you don't have alcohol ink,
you can use my background.
by saving above picture to your
computer with a click of your right mouse button.
The seaweed on the alcohol ink background is
embossed with lime green embossing powder.
The sentiment is printed with the
computer in the font called skwirl
(you can find it free on www.dafont.com)
I stamped and embossed the turtle in black
and colored the image with distress ink in the
colors peacock feathers, broken china and
mowed lawn by putting a drop on my craft sheet
and adding a drop of water.
To give rhe card some extra bling there
are a few sticky gemstones on his shield and
on the background.
Thanks for looking and leaving your comment.
Have a creative day!
