Does She Still Exist?

No I did not go extinct!! LOL!! That is what you call for lack of a better term...a "blog break", but make sure you read that as..."too much work and not enough time". Couple that with snow days all last week, and you have my life!! LOL!

So for some reason there seems to be a lot of babies being born around me. I have been at my job now for almost 8 years. In the 8 years that I have been there, there has not been a time where someone HAS NOT been pregnant. It must be something in the water. My dear friend Lynn had a little boy a few months back. Her nursery is aquatic theme, with blues and purples.

Stamp sets: Fishy Friends, Simply Circles, and Everyday Flexible Phrases

Cardstock: Lavender Lace, Cool Caribbean, Barely Banana, Natural white

Ink: Black Stazon and Versamark

Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Ribbon,sponge and eyelets

I made a matching framed art piece for her to put in the room. The picture isn't the best, but you get the idea. Do you see the little charm in between the first two photos. That is the same Starfish that is stamped on the card, but instead, I stamped in on Poly shrink.

This was a frame that I purchased at the dollar store. For the mat, I simply flipped it over. The reverse side had a somewhat glossy finish. I stamped the circles first in versamark, and then took my brayer and brayered ink over top the mat until I got the desired result. The versamark ink resits the colored ink, leaving behind "bubbles"!!! Easy Peasy!!
