Stamptangle Fun

I am one of those people that absolutely love the look of Zentangle, but I really do not always have the time to create it myself.  If this describes you, then make sure you check out all the Just For Fun Stamptangle images in the Just For Fun online store, including many new ones.

The Stamptangle Dolphin is featured on today’s card.  I had so much fun coloring it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens on watercolor paper.  I did the same with the Stamptangle Water Splash and then cut them out to create the splashes at the bottom.

The sentiment is from JFF's Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet.  It was heat embossed in white and die cut with Spellbinders’ Label 4.  The edges were inked to make it stand out more.

I had a little fun with the background.  I stamped the Circles Background on top of decorative cardstock and heat embossed in white.  This gave it some great color with a bubbly look.

Don’t forget about the Just For Fun August Challenge with the theme of “Sand in Our Toes”.  It’s all about the ocean and beach.  You have until Wednesday, August 31st to enter your creation for a chance at a JFF Gift Card.

Enjoy your week!

Just For Fun August Challenge

Wow!  Where is the summer going?  I can’t believe it is August already.  With a new month comes a new challenge at Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Blog. 

 For the month of August the challenge theme is “Sand In Our Toes”.  Think beach or ocean.

We also have an optional sketch we would love to see you use.

I recently visited my youngest daughter and we spent some time at the beach.  It is always so relaxing, with the sound of the waves.  This is one of my favorite places to vacation.  Great inspiration for my card.

After creating a soft watercolor background, I stamped the Palm Trees in black.  I wanted a dark solid black image so I actually re-stamped it using my handmade Misti, using a picture frame from Ikea.  This worked great.

The sentiment, How great to do nothing, was stamped in blue, and both pieces were layered on black.   

The card was completed using additional layers of yellow and blue.

Now it is your turn.  Make sure you visit the Just For Fun blog for all the rules and details.
