Saturday Craft Day

I've had the best creative day today! I'm getting caught up with my justjohanna assignments and I'm also working on some fun stuff. This first card, "Sea of Love" is one I've been thinking about for quite some time. All the stamps are by justjohanna. For the jars, I stamped the jar stamp with black Staz-On on a clear transparency, cut them out and then used my silver Krylon pen for the jar lid. I colored on the back of the transparency so that the stamped details would show through. The bubbles were colored in with glitter pen. I ran the transparency jars through my Xyron sticker maker. I was surprised, and pleased, to know that the adhesive didn't glob up nor did it show through the transparency. This is a thank you card. I only used one stamp, the fleur de lis, by justjohanna. I used my stamp positioner and stamped four of them in the center. Then I stamped four more on a separate piece of paper. I colored all the images with my Prismacolor pencils, and then cut out the four separately stamped images. I adhered them to the image area with pop dots. Paper is from DCWV Glitter Stack. I tied a metal tag that says "Thank You" onto the ribbon with a little safety pin. (I see globs of something on the cards. That isn't there in real life. My scanner was dirty, but I cleaned it up.)

Love your cards today. I have some fish stamps that I haven't used yet. Maybe I'll have to try the transparency thing.
