After discovering that June 25th is National Catfish Day, Lois Bak (our June CCEE Challenge Hostess) has asked that the CCEE Stampers create a card that has some kind of fish or sea life on it. I don't have a catfish in my collection, but I do have a bass!

This card was stamped directly on the cardfront with the fisherman's hat being stamped first.
After the hat was completed, I masked it and stamped the creel. I added a mask for the creel before completing the card.
To finish the card, I added the fly, the float, the grass, and the sentiment before removing the masks.
The responses I received about my new visual color recipes were all positive so I plan to continue adding them to my posts. They are very helpful to me, as well as my readers, for future reference. The color recipes I have posted below are the ones I used to complete this design.
The grass was brushed on with SU Certainly Celery and the sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.
I am entering this card in the following challenges today:
This Sunday (June 23) is National Pink Day. Lois has an easy challenge for the CCEE Stampers this week - make a pink card.
I had two non-stamper friends over to make cards yesterday afternoon. They have been getting their cards at the Dollar Store. I wanted to show then just how quickly, easily, and beautifully they could create their own cards. And inexpensively, too, when their friend has all the tools and materials they will need to share with them. We used just distress oxides, Versafine Onyx Black, silhouette stamps, and sentiments. They left very happy!!
While they worked on their cards, I took three minutes to create this pink one for today's challenge.
I am trying out a new feature on my blog today with the main color recipes I used to create today's card. Instead of just listing the colors, I am going to stamp and photograph the progression of the image and the color used as I stamp it. The order in which I stamped the image will start on the left and read to the right. I usually stamp darkest to lightest, but not always. So sometimes the layers will be out of order, but by reading left to right you will be able to see how I stamped it. I am starting first with the bass today. My photography on this is not the best on my first try, but I think you get the idea. Be sure to let me know it this is helps you better understand layered stamping. Color Recipe for the Bass
Color Recipe for the Log Cabin
The bass and the cabin were the only things that needed masking to create this scene. The trees are images used at last year's Junkie Fest Workshops and are no longer available for purchase.
