Row Baby Row!


I received these stamps in a recent Stampendous order. I thought they were just too cute not to ink up! The main image is Stampendous Row Changito Row !

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

I colored the image using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paintbrush. The image was stamped a second time on a piece of scrap paper just to get the umbrella they are rowing with. I cut it out and popped it up with Scotch mounting tape for a little added dimension.

The sentiment is Bailing Me Out , also from Stampendous.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Eva paper pad. The cardstock is Pink Prismatics and Kiwi Prismatics .

The ribbon is Celery Satin from May Arts. I added Dew Drops from the Peony collection for added interest.

Thanks so, so much for stopping by tonight! I appreciate all your thoughtful comments, and promise to be back soon.

Until then...

Just a note to compliment you on this card. It's wonderful! I love the background paper. I've been purchasing various pads of paper from Basic Grey mainly because most of you 'girls' have been using it. The papers from all the 6'x6' paper pads are absolutely gorgeous!
Great Job, Michelle!!
