Seal case


Todays featured stamper is Kim aka Blondie090277. She has a wonderful gallery! I cased her Sammy the seal card. I loved her background shading and TRIED it on my card. Yeah I think I'll just leave it to Kim!LOL!
I pulled the colors from the Paper studio dp I used. I used a real red 4 1/4" sq card base and bazzil yellow to mat the dp. I punched out the scallop circle in tempting turquiose and used fiskars circles for my main image. I colored the ground with copic marker e33 sand and prismacolor canary yellow for the highlight around the seal. The hambo seal is colored with prismacolor marker cool grey 40%. I love this adorable seal and when I saw Kim's seal card I knew I had to case it using my hambo seal! I dont have the stand stamp that goes with the seal so I used Kims idea to use a punch for the ball. I punched the ball with a 1 1/4" circle and drew lines using another circle edge. I colored the ball with prismacolor markers canary yellow and crimson red. I popped up seal on top of the ball. Now I wasnt really thing when I did this b/c the seal is over the awning but oh well!LOL! For the awning I used my Martha stewart border punch with textured wild wasabi. The awning, the seal, and the turquiose scallop are all popped up. This was a fun card to make and I will probably add a bday sentiment to it for one of the kids classmates. Have a great day!
