Today is release day for four brand new digi stamps from All Dressed Up and I was given the pretty Mermaid Rock image.  Here's a peek at all of them:

                               Mermaid Rock                            Summer Bird
I love shaker cards but they seem to take me a long time to get done quite often a couple of attempts.  For this one, I sponged in Broken China Distress Oxide ink.  This is the first time using the Distress Oxide and I am sold on them so have actually gone out and bought a few more colours.  They blend beautifully and seem to react to the water quicker and more dramatically.  Not sure if I'm describing this accurately but I certainly do like them.
Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to see all the images (you won't be disappointed) and check out what the rest of the team did because there's lots of inspiration there.

Stokes the Owl - Rubbernecker Stamps

Welcome and I hope all is well with you.
For today's card, I am using another of the new owl stamps from Rubbernecker.  This cute fella is Stokes and it looks like he just climbed out of bed.  I wish I would have had a suitable coffee sentiment when I made this but I didn't although I think it's rather self-explanatory that he just got up and is having his morning cup of java though.

Regan - Rubbernecker Stamps

,
Hi there and I hope all is well with you.
For today's card, I am using another of the new stamps from Rubbernecker and this cute little gal is called Regan.  She actually reminds me a bit of my daughter when she was younger... like a mini crazy cat lady, she just loved them.  This card seemed to work up quite quickly.  Once I had decided on the layout, the colouring didn't take long because it's not a large or detailed stamp.  Rather than shading with Copics, I went back to my old standby, shading with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I also added some white gel pen to the dots and that's it.  Quick. Easy. Simple.

Summer Fun - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi All!  
I am late posting but here's a quick and easy card I did up with the Spring Basket die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  It was very easy, I used the flowers and grass from the die and drew in the stems with a Copic Multiliner.  The sun is from the Rainbow Sky set and I added the sunglasses from the Beach Sentiments for a  bit of fun.
That's it... a quick, easy, bright and cheery card!

Happy Birthday - Rubbernecker Challenge
