Turtley Awesome!

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!

Happy Crafting!
Lisa

I don’t know how you did it but your bg smooshing is perfect! I also like the way you went back to the turtle with your green marker to make sure there was enough green on the turtle. Well done tfs.
