Seahorse Toggle Bracelet

Here is the ocean theme bracelet I made with the cute seahorse toggle. Below is the finished bracelet:


I used Swarovski 6mm & 3mm bicones, square mini beads, and 8mm pearls to make this bracelet. Finish it with the seahorse toggle. It's a quick and easy project. Below is another look of the bracelet:


I love the color combination of the bracelet and it makes me think about the ocean.

Here is MTF Color Challenge 26, below are the challenge photos:



I decided to use the Abstract Background stamp to make a card for this challenge. Here is the finished card:


I stamped the Abstract Background on a watercolor paper with steel grey ink and used watercolor to color ripe raspberry, jellybean green, and limelight randomly into the triangle shapes. Then, I cut out these colored triangles. I stamped the Abstract Background on another piece of white cardstock and use foam tapes to attach those cut-out colored triangles onto the background. I stamped "Be Authentic" (from Be Original stamp set) on a stripe of vellum and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Attach this vellum stripe at the bottom of the card. Here is another look of the card to see the dimension of these colored triangles:

Hero Arts Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Here is Hero Arts Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for June. Below is the challenge photo:


I decided to make a card for the column of "circles", "background stamp", and "watercolor". And here is the finished card:


I white embossed the background stamp on a watercolor paper. Then, I used a piece of acetate applying Distress ink pad sprayed with water mist to color the background. This is the so-called "Smooshing" technique which is pretty popular currently. I cut a circle in the middle of the watercolor background. I stamped coffee mug and greeting on a piece of circle kraft cardstock with Hero Arts blue Ombre ink pad. I also brushed the clear Wink of the Stella pen on the mug. Finish the card by lifting the background with foam tapes and let the kraft circle show under the circle. Below is another look of the card (to see the dimension):


And here is a closer look of the kraft circle:


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI, watercolor paper
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Hero Arts, Versamark, Distress ink pads
Others: circle die, the Wink of Stella pen, foam tapes, white embossing powder
