CYCI127 and SSC130 You're Sublime

Happy 4th, everyone!  I have a fun little card today using (again) You're Sublime and some fun colors from Can You Case It:

along with the sketch from Sunday Stamps:

And here we go! 

I started out with some watercolor paper that is really crappy...but I hate to waste anything so, I am striving to make the best of it!  SU's is really the best, I just wish in came in bigger pieces!  Anyway, I stamped my submarine in Stazon and used an aquatpainter and inks in Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Cool Cucumber to color my image:

You can see how the image bled, even after drying it with a heat tool!  I gave the fishies and the periscope a little highlight with my white gel pen and stamped some speckles with the current Paper Pumpkin set.  I rounded the top edges with a corner punch, tore the bottom edge, added a banner sentiment and some baker's twine to finish it off.  Oh, and I added some Candy Dots too!  I mounted it all on a Bermuda Bay panel that was embossed with the Decorative Dots EF.  It's corny but cute!   Hope your day is wonderful!

Missin' this little funny face!


  1. Love those colors and I don't think the bleeding takes anything from it, just makes it more watery and fun.

  2. I agree with Lorraine. It just makes it look more watery!

    She'll be home before you know it and you can get back to normal.
