Tombow USA and Avery Elle Blog Hop!



Hello friends! 

Welcome to the Tombow USA and Avery Elle Blog Hop! You arrived here from Lauren Fitzmaurice's blog. If you stumbled across my blog make sure you start the hop party at the Avery Elle Blog.
My card today used Avery Elle's The Reef Clear Stamps along with the coordinating Reef  Elle-ments dies and the Coral Reef Elle-ments dies.   First I die cut the Coral Reef shapes from white card stock.  I colored them in with a Minc Reactive markers and applied silver and rose gold foil to the die cut shapes.  




Next I stamped and embossed the seahorse from The Reef Stamp set and colored it with the Ironjiten Colored Pencil Set in Soft Primary. These are gorgeous waxed based colored pencils and it was so easy to add some soft color to the seahorse image. 


I adhered the die cuts and images to a panel of watercolor paper that I had sponged with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Broken China.  I spritzed and mopped up water to create that droplet effect.  I stamped the sentiment with black in and adhered it to a light gray card base.
