Sand Dollar Thanks


Hi there!  Back with some more paint sample cards for the Moxie Fab World Ombre Challenge.  I wanted to make a set of thank you cards and so made 8 using different paint strips.  As with yesterday I left the names showing but this time because I feel they add a bit of balance to the stamped images.  Here's  a couple of other colours:



I used an older Hero Arts sand dollar stamp and so am also going to join in the Free Style challenge at A Blog Named Hero.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Sand dollar from Fish & Shells) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Mat Stack 1 Collection) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, StazOn Jet Black)  Tsukineko
Gems:  Michaels
Paint Samples:  True Value

What an awesome card set. The detail on the sand dollars pops beautifully off the color.

This is a great way of using paint sample cards Jen and the sand dollar is a perfect image. I really liked your card in the last post too with the white embossing. The photo of Kenzie is brilliant - sometimes I worry that the children will come home from school and find me like that with a hoover in my hand! Vicky x
