Hello Barracuda!

Hello crafty world! How is your Tuesday? So For today's project I took inspiration from A Card a Day's June Just Because Challenge and 365 Cards White Space Challenge. But I have to admit there was a tiny bit more inspiration from an unlikely source.

I Just gave myself a mani pedi using Sally Hanson's Hello Barracuda  (the pale blue) and Sally Hanson Grass Slipper (the green). I Just loved how summer and fun these colors were, especially working together! So I incorporated it in to today's card.  

So I used Two stamp sets from My Mind's Eye called "Sweetest things 'remember' " and "Ginger 'Pictures' Stamp". To create the gradients in the stamp I simply used 3 Ink pads (one green, one blue and one beige) on the stamps and blended them. I really like how this one turned out! It was easy and could definitely be mass produced. I had fun and I hope you enjoy! 

Stay crafty!
