Hello! It's Lisa Lahiff here again, and I am so very honored to be Guest Designing here with Gerda Steiner Designs! I can never tell you enough just how much I LOVE the adorable critter stamps that can be found in the store, and the one I'm working with today (Turtley Great) is no different!
To create this card I started by stamping my turtle and sentiment with Versafine ink onto watercolor cardstock. Next, I spritzed some colors onto a piece of plastic, I like to keep packaging from stamp sets specifically for this technique. I then laid my cardstock stamped side down onto the ink and smooshed it in. I would let it dry before smooshing the colors again. I still wanted my turtle to have some set green so once it was all dry I went over the turtle with my Spectrum Noir markers. I then adhered my panel onto various strips of patterned paper and finished it with a few glitter enamel dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I've inspired you to maybe try a new technique or add coloring to your smooshing :). And don't forget to check out the new sets coming to the store, I already have my eyes on the cute new ghosts!
