SIP #202 Life's a Beach with Stampin Up! Lilypad Lake

Hi There!  I hope your week is off to another good start!  This week over at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a Beach Theme!  

I usually LOVE anything Nautical but as usual I waited until the last minute and didn't have a lot of energy so I went with something pretty simple.

My inspiration started with a shimmer paint spray from Hero Arts that I had lying around and hadn't used.  I had a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and sprayed the cardstock on the lower right corner to see what color it was.  It was just a little too green for me at first so I picked up a bottle of FSJ Cool Pool Silk and added a little in the same corner and then misted it with water using a TH Distress Mister.  I used my heat tool to dry it and then stamped the "Be calm and leave it to God" sentiment from the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set in the upper left corner.  I stamped the bird onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using Versafine Black Ink and cut it out with the coordinating Lakeside Framelits.  I adhered my bird... is it a Heron???... onto the lower left as it he is walking into a storm of water.  I used some Emerald Envy Cardstock to Matt my front panel and then mounted all of that onto Basic Black Cardstock.  I added just a few dashes with a black marker where my bird was walking to ground him a bit.  I second guessed myself on that but alas it was too late.  lol  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
