God's Treasures by Joy Clair Stamps~

Hi guys!!
Today it is my turn on the Joy Clair Blog.  I'm creating with the
 God's Treasures set and it is super cute!!! I created three different cards,
using different techniques for the card background.

The first card example is a mix of blue green colors to represent the ocean and then a brown mix to represent the beach sand.  The treasure chest is stamped on the beach and gemstones are added, with sparkle, to enhance the treasure chest.  All three cards were matted with coordinating cardstock and then adhered to a folded card.

The second card is an example of the Distress Oxide ink applied with a sponge and then spritzed with water, so droplets form, creating an interesting background.  The stamping is done over the background and then colored in with watered down Distress Oxide ink.  The gemstones are stamped out on scrap cardstock, trimmed out and adhered with 3D dimensional adhesive.  The images are high lighted with a glitter pen.

The third card is an example of a mixed color background.  The Distress Oxide ink is watered down and the paper is laid in the mix of color.  The concept is to layer the colors, on the heavy cardstock, drying with a heat tool after each color.  This makes it easy to add more color when needed.  The stamping is done over the background.  The images were stamped out, trimmed and then adhered to the card front with 3D dimensional adhesive.
