Monday two-fer

Hi Bloggers.

I have a two fer for you today -

A simple little Coconut White and Black Card made using the Justrite Doodled Birds Stamp Set. I stamped everything using Jet Black Archival.

Here's the second card -

I used the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies to create my card blank and my mats. On my smallest white mat (my background), I left the die in place and embossed with the Wavy Mask. I removed the mask and inked around the edges with CS Turquoise Pool Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I misted a piece of Coconut White Card and added some Aqua Lagoon and Silver Dream CS Pixie Powders. Once completely dry, I dusted with my Anti-Static Bag and then stamped the text frame from the Justrite At the Beach Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I trimmed it to a little larger than the stamp and matted onto a piece of Black Card. I stamped the shell from the same stamp set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Black Detail Powder. I tapped a little Aqua Lagoon and Silver Dream Pixie Powders into separated wells in a Mixing Palette. I added a little water to make a paint and used them to colour in the shell. I used the co-ordinating die from the Justrite At the Beach Dies to cut the shell out and added it to my text panel.

I used some remaining Pixie Powdered card to cut the sentiment using the At the Beach Dies.

I finished the card by adding some Aqua Dazzlers to the corners.

Just to let you know that I've had a delivery of Wow! Embossing Powders. I have re-stocked and I've some new colours including some great ones for Christmas projects. Just £2.50 per pot - you can find them here.
