Starfish Wishes

Hello stampers,

The last time Stampin' Up! I remember Stampin' Up! selling glossy white card stock, I was a beginning stamper.  I had no one to teach me how to use it and no Pinterest.  To say my creations were a disaster is an understatement.  So, when my fellow demonstrators were so excited about the return of glossy white card stock with the current catalog, I decided to do a little research and give it another try.  My experience this time has been so different.  Today I'm sharing the first card I created with the glossy white card stock.

To create the background, I combined a bunch of techniques.  I wish I had taken photos along the way, but truly, I was just experimenting.  First I started with swiping Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party Classic Stamp Pads across the panel.  Next, I added drops of reinker in Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay on the panel.  I spritzed the panel with some water and then tilted the panel so the ink would go where it wanted.  Finally, I used my heat gun to speed the drying process (I'm not known for my patience!)  I colored the mermaid with blender pen.
