Stampin' Up! Sneak Peak for the Summer Mini Catalogue meets Less is more


Here's a sneaky peak at things to come next week!  Make sure you check back 1 May for some exciting news from Stampin' Up! via me! 

My sneak peak also fits in with the challenge at Less is More this week where the lovely Mandy and Chrissie have set us a sketch to follow.   To achieve this effect you need to stamp onto patterned paper in this case Stampin' Up! First Edition Specialty paper using shades of blue and black Staz On ink.  The stamps are all new in one set.  The sea beneath the ship was gently coloured with a Stampin' Watercolour Pencils and blended with a blender pen.  You can then cover the whole piece of printed paper with versamark and heat set with clear embossing powder.  Finally stamp the anchor over the top with black Staz On.  You can matt onto not quite navy cardstock and then onto distressed vanilla cardstock.  Stamp your sentiment underneath your image and job done! 

Check back for more sneak peaks soon!
