Flip Flop Border Die


Our Daily Bread designs, Mudd Puddles, Copics

Is this FUN or what!! I love that the flip flop border stamp has a matching die!!! I stamped Life is Better in Momento Black Tuxedo, used the Flip Flop Border die and colored with Copics.

Just some sponging with distress inks and some Mudd Puddles sand added!

I think I need all those colors of flip flops!

I stamped Anchor the Soul in Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, sponging and a little white acrylic paint for the clouds. You also might recognize Pennants die with the sentiment.

Your sponging skills are top notch!! The sky and ocean on both cards are so realistic. The one with the anchor looks like a painting! I really like the addition of sand on the flip flop card! Fantastic work!!

How happy and fun your first card is :-) Love the flip flop border - goes perfectly with your sentiment! I'm so in love with the anchor image that I'm going to purchase it as soon as I finish all my comments :-) The rest will have to go on my wish list (sigh). Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards.

Did you work hard on these two cards, Dawn? They look so simple, yet I imagine it was hard work. I love both cards! I am really loving all design team cards.

Love the way you did the sand and water in both these cards, but they have totally different looks, fun sand added to the first and your second card has such a peaceful feel!
