PCC274 Sketch Challenge Hero Arts Manatee Stamp and Cut

Hello and Happy New Year!  Hope your week and year are going well so far!   I have many goals this year and one of them is to try to make all of my Design Team or Blog Hop deadlines.  Well so far I'm 3 for 3!  Woo Hoo!  Hopefully I can keep this pace up!

Today I'm over with the Paper Craft Crew with my interpretation of a fun sketch!  Hope you'll head over and check out all of the inspiration by the Design Team this week and then give it a try yourself!

So I must admit that I usually stay pretty close to the sketch but this week I have a pretty loose interpretation using the Hero Arts Manatee Stamp & Cut set!

Not just loose but maybe a little loosey goosey.. lol  I did some Distress Ink Watercolor Smooshing using a Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress Inks onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  I stamped the images on more Bristol Smooth with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then clear embossed them.  I used more distress inks to color in the images.  Once dry I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then adhered them to the front panel with Tombow Multipurpose glue.  I stamped a few bubbles from the set in Broken China distress ink directly onto the card front.  The sentiment was also stamped in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and clear embossed.  I used a Lil' Inkers Designs stitched rectangle to cut out my panel and then mounted that with foam tape onto Gina K Designs Turquoise Sea Card Stock.  I finished it off with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparking Clear Confetti. 

I hope you like it half as much as I do.. I love it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
