Sweet 'n Sassy June Release Bloghop and Giveaway

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps June release hop and Giveaway. You should have landed here via Cathy's blog, if not be sure to head back to the Sweet 'n Sassy blog so you don't miss any inspiration and be sure to leave comments to be eligible to win.

Now for the deets on my cards. 
They both use the new set Mer-mazing just two different looks. I stamped all the images for both cardsand then cut them out with the ScanNCut.

The first sample I created the background by using the Mermaid Scales stencil by A Colorful Life Designs. I laid down some color on my glass mat spayed it with water and then placed the stencil down and laid the panel of watercolor paper on top and then lightly rolled a brayer over it
You can save 10% on your stencil order by using my code CealACL10

The second sample I created the background with my favorite three Gina K inks, Passionate Pink, Wild Dandelion and Blue Lagoon(the sand is Sandy Beach of course) and the Life Changing Brushes by Picket Fence Studios. I colored the images using Copic markers and placed them on the background, I popped up the rocks and finished the card by using a postage stamp die to create the focal panel. 

Your next stop is Diane, don't forget to leave some love.
