Stretch Your Stamps!

A Blog Named Hero has a current challenge going on:

ABNH - Stretch Stamps

Sponsored by your favorite online stamping product company with the best logo ever (I may be partial as it has a naughty Boston Terrier in it, but nevermind that):

SSS Logo

July Cards 006

All Hero Arts stamps of course, and I just got the Tim Holtz Summer Distress Ink colors and wanted to play!

Both cards feature my favorite HA/Studio Calico Lattice Background, as well as set CL129.

 July Cards 007

I kept the color palette clean, using only the Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn.  Kind of a Lilly Pullitzer look, no?  That flower is HA CG194.  A bit of Liquid Pearls scattered about to finish.

 July Cards 008

For this card I took the same lattic background and used it as water with the Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  The frame around the sentiment and the fish are both from HA CL451 (which I still haven’t seen in any other challenge).  The yellow fish in the middle is popped on foam – he’s designed to stick out against the crowd!  More Liquid Pearls for the fishes’ air bubbles to finish.

Thanks for popping by, I appreciate the visit!  Stick around, stay awhile – if you like these cards you might like these cards made with the same stamp sets: Live in Sunshine and Seahorse Card.

Which of these is your favorite?  I can’t decide!
