The Creating Kindness hop is here again, and the Guest Designer this month is Melinda Stearns.
Welcome, Melinda ! I can't wait to see what you create 😁
The theme this month is Texture, I love texture. And there are so many marvelous ways to achieve it! How shall I narrow it down?!
There are several methods of texture here. Inky texture, Glitter paste/gel, cardstock layers, faux stitching, and heat embossing!
I used a bunch of retired/limited edition Kindred Stamps stuff. The adorable Park Cuties stamp set for the castle and greetings. And the Bananas box, which was actually released in the beginning of May and sold out the first week, contributes the amazing amusement park edge die. I think that was my favorite part of that box.
This sky is Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inked onto a white panel and spritzed with Pearlized water (Perfect Pearls added to water in a spray bottle).
I took the Dandelions 6x8 stencil from Scrapbook.com and masked off the stems, and used Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel in White and Turquoise Sea, and Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze of the Month in Perfect Plum and Frosted Window Pane.
The castle was colored with Copics, Clear Wink of Stella, Sakura White Gel pen, and Jane Davenport Golden Age pen.
This turned out better than I had hoped! It will be perfect for the theme park enthusiast's birthday at work!
