People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Guest Designer Megan Aaron

Hello, Megan Aaron here with a couple of fun summer cards for you. I am so excited to be guest designing for Great Impressions this month!

I made two cards with these adorable stamps! I definitely could have kept going because I had so much fun! For this first card, I used watercolor pencils to color the image. For the sand, I masked the penguin feet and then blended a couple colors of ink to create variation. Next I used a mask and a slightly darker ink to add the dots, which I then embossed with opalescent clear embossing powder to create a little bit of glimmer, which doesn't show up very well in this photo. Additionally, I added glossy accents to the inner tube, sunglasses and bow, which also doesn't show up well in this photo.

Faber Castell watercolor pencils
Clearsnap inks and embossing powders
Ranger Glossy accents
Crafter's Workshop stencil
SRM stickers sentiment

For this card, I wanted to make the image stand out from the rest of the card, so I fussy cut it. I colored this one with watercolor pencils and alcohol ink markers. The double frame really sets off the image.
