Seal-Abrate! {Avery Elle}

Hello friends!

Happy Friday! I am on the Avery Elle blog today with a card I made using the Seal-Abrate stamp set and coordinating dies.  

Last weekend, I finally got around to enrolling in the Copic Markers for card makers self-paced class at Online Card Classes.   I am still very much a beginner, but I picked up tons of great tips and techniques.  I watched a bunch of the videos and stamped out a ton of these cute little seals to practice coloring and shading.  I gave my E31, E33, E35, and E39 markers quite the workout! I thought that this one turned out the best, so I die cut him and his little stool.  Before adhering the seal to the card, I sponged some Sea Glass pigment ink onto the center of a 4.25" square card and stamped the sentiment. 

I was going for a circus vibe with the background and used the Burst Elle-ment die cut twice- once in white and once in red.  I snipped apart the red die cut and adhered it to the white before adhering the die cut overlay onto the card. 

Well that's it for me today!  I am off work taking a long weekend, and it's going to be a fun one too! Tomorrow is crafty day with some of my girlfriends, and Sunday is our summer trip to Cedar Point amusement park with Jason and the girls.  Today will be filled with cleaning, shopping and preparing so I can enjoy the rest of what the weekend has in store! 

Please be sure to stop by the Avery Elle blog for even more inspiration from Jamie and the rest of the Avery Elle team!
