Come on in the Water's Fine ...

Good morning.  My name is Ruza and I am super excited to share my first Design Team project using this adorable QKR Stampede stamp.

This FUN stamp is called Floating Gator that I paired up with the Come on in sentiment.  Both images are available in rubber and digital format.  I used the digital images for my card. 

Copic Markers
G82, G03 & G94 for the Gator, B02 for the Gator Eyes
N0, N2, N3 & N5 for the Inner Tube
R29, R39 & B95 for the Patches

I created a mask of the Floating Gator and applied various Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the water.  I used a Spica Clear Pen on the Gator in the shaded areas to add a bit of additional dimension.  However, I don't think you can see it in this picture.  I looks pretty awesome in person. ;o)

I brought the sentiment into Microsoft Word, used the picture tools to add a small frame around the sentiment to get the 3D look, and then used 3D foam tape to attach the sentiment.

I will be showcasing QKR Stampede stamps on my blog, Ruza's Craft Corner, every Tuesday.  I hope you will stop by to check them out.

Until next time ... Enjoy!
