Can't help it; I love puns.  Adore cheek. This has both. •massive grin•


That little block of wonky scalloped lines from Wonky Backdrops is such a useful background stamp!


  • Apply water-based dye inks in mint and aqua hues to the scalloped lines, mist lightly with water and impress onto quarter sheet of watercolor paper; set aside to dry.
  • Stamp seashells with black pigment ink onto watercolor paper and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Watercolor the images and diecut with coordinating dies.
  • Mount watercolor background panel to standard A-2 card front (4.25 x 5.5").
  • Die cut speech bubble ( love that thang!!! ) from white card stock and stamp sentiment with black ink.
  • Mount all die cut pieces with foam mounting tape to card as shown.
  • Embellish the conch shell with Pico Embellisher/Glossy Accents and glue on the little clear Drops; allow to dry.

Cute, sassy, done!


Have a fantasmagorical weekend!

P.S.  I have no idea where the word "fantasmagorical" originated.  I only know that as a kid, it was something my Dad would say and it always made me smile.  He still says it, and I still smile.  Good times.
