Here is the second card I made from my 3 Little DReaMs kit.
The only thing not in the kit is the white grosgrain ribbon. I colored over the water with my clear glaze pen(seriously love that thing, so handy!) and used my trusty Coluzzle to cut out the ovals. I went around the green oval with my old-school scallop scissors. I'm taking a stand and not buying the Nestabilities! Well, someday I might break down and get them, but not anytime soon!
Here is a close up of the water-
Ready for your tip today? It involves the Coluzzle, this is something I love to do with my clear stamps!
When you are cutting out a shape with the Coluzzle and want your sentiment(or borders work too) to follow the same direction as your cut, use your Coluzzle template for a block!
Just bend the stamps (love that about clear stamps) to fit the shape the way you want! That is how I got my sentiment above my turtle. The turtle in the water is one stamp and the sentiment is another, but I wanted them on the same oval piece. I cut the paper on the third oval, so I just lined up my stamp right inside that line. I also used a permanent marker to make the different lines different colors so I could see easier where I was cutting. Easy-peasy! I hope that makes sense! If you have any questions, just ask!
