I have to admit I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this week’s Impression Obsession challenge for shades of green. For one thing, I have only a handful of IO stamps and a number of them are clearly Valentine’s or Christmas or New Year’s. When I looked at my collection of stamps, process of elimination gave me the cute Gumball Machine stamp. I’m sure many of us are dreaming of beaches & summer now!
I wanted this to be a bright and cheery card, so I picked Green Galore and Gable Green. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics. The sand is Martha Stewart Florentine Gold glitter. Each beach ball has a little touch of Emerald Green Liquid Pearls on the tops, as well as the top of the gumball machine and handle. While the Liquid Pearls dried, I embossed the Gable Green with the Spots & Dots folder and added three rows of satin-edged organdy ribbon. I popped up the gumball machine panel on dimensionals and added the sentiment. As a last touch, I covered the globe of the machine with Diamond Glaze and left it to dry over night.
I love how this turned out. It makes me smile, which is exactly what I had hoped for.
Sending Sunshine & Joy
