Crafty Friends: Essentials by Ellen

Welcome back, friends! Who is excited to see what we company we are going to feature this month?! I was excited to try a new to me company, Essentials by Ellen from Ellen! I was so excited I had to use to stamp sets! I used there Wasabi set with matching dies and the Otterly Awesome set with matching dies.

And we have a coupon code for you again!! We are really good friends, aren't we.

And yes, I made a video!

I managed to make 2 cards this time, and this is the first one. The background is heat embossed with White Satin Pearl embossing powder. There is a stitched rectangle die cut with a die from the Flippin Awesome Add-on dies, and the green was created using Mijello Mission Gold watercolor in Olive Green done as a wash with Hero Arts Gold Glimmer ink washed over the top.

Do you like the layers of sashimi and sushi? It's making me hungry!

And the finishing touches inside are the rest of the sentiment and an extra top facing sushi roll.

On to the next card. This time I use the Otterly Awesome set to create a fun hello card. The background is watercolor and I believe with a reactive ink from a past My Monthly Hero and then heat embossed using the Waves background stamp from Hero Arts. The sentiment panel is given a wash of iridescent watercolor ink.

You can probably see the glimmer a little better on this photo. The otters are colored with Copic markers and diecut with the coordinating dies. Everything is popped up on coaster blanks.

That's it for me this time. Be sure to head on down to the next blog top participant. The blog roll is just below.
