Tupelo Designs ~ Peace Dude!

Hello friends.  It's Thursday and that means it's my turn to post for TupeloDesignsLLC.

One of the fun sets I chose from their store is from Your Next Stamp "One In A Chameleon".  This peace loving guy stole my heart!  There's two chameleon images to choose from in the set and it also has a paint splatter image, which I used here with some tropical colors from Altenew  ~ "Bamboo" from the Tropical Forest collection, "Ocean Wave" from Cool Summer Night collection and Fresh Lemon" from Pocket Full of Sunshine collection.

I cut three graduating sizes of Stitched Octagon Layers from Memory Box and popped them up using Scotch Pop-Up Foam Squares.

This card will be donated along with many other uplifting cards to Cards for Little Hearts.  Christina Hor is the founder of this wonderful organization that gives loads of cards to Nationwide Children's Hospital and The Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.  This is very near and dear to my heart since my son Christopher was a Children's Miracle Network child when he was an infant, born with a heart disorder.  He spent several weeks in the NICU starting when he was just 16 days old. 
He is now a healthy 26 years old.  Praise God!

Seas The Day

I love sitting on the beach, just watching the waves and soaking up the sunshine.  This image from Penny Black "Beach Baby" is so adorable and fun to color.
 This stamp is one that I chose for my design team spot for TupeloDesigsLLC.  They have all the Penny Black stamps and at really great prices! 
   
 I colored her up using Copics and added the scenery in the background.  I used a white gel pen to mark in some waves and the surf coming up on the shore.

The sentiment is from Stampendous "Ocean Wisdom".  

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday ~ Beachy Birthday
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Frame It
Work It Wednesday ~ Summer

Water Colored Floral Bouquet

Hello friends.  I've paired up Altenew's Watercolor Stripes Cover Die with Avery Elle's Floral Bouquet stamps and dies to create my first project for TupeloDesignsLLC





I started by cutting the Watercolor Stripes die out of Canson Watercolor Paper and did an ombre wash using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I stamped the Avery Elle Flowers onto watercolor cardstock and colored them using the Ziggies.  I die cut them out using the coordinating die and set them aside to let the pieces dry.
  
Once the flowers were dry, I added some sparkle to the centers using a Nuvo Glitter Marker fromEmber Glow.  I LOVE these glitter markers!!

I mounted everything onto a piece of glitter paper from my stash and stamped the sentiment from the Floral Bouquet.

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  All the products I used are linked above to TupeloDesignsLLC.
