We all know someone who’s had a bit of hard luck, whether it’s from an injury or illness or just a personal set back. This card which I created using the Back On Your Feet stamp set is the perfect way to cheer someone up and let them know you’re thinking of them.
I stamped the turtle in Memento Ink then pulled out my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers to color him in. By using both the light and dark Stampin’ Blends, I was able to add shading and create a little depth. I also used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend Marker to color the 3 pearls. Stampin’ Blends work great for this.
If you’ve followed my blog for long, you’ve noticed that there are 3 things I include on nearly all of my stamping. That is layers, Embellishments and texture. The layers in this card are obvious and we’ve already talked about the pearl embellishments, so now on to the texture. I used the Mosaic 3-D Embossing Folder on the layer of Granny Apple Green to add texture that resembles the turtle’s shell. It’s a quick and easy way to tie the whole thing together.
