This cute little guy and a variety of others can be yours free with a purchase of $50 or more during the month of June from Clear Dollar Stamps . He's so much fun to play with - I had a hard time choosing what I was going to do.
As I've said in my previous posts - every month the DT are given challenges. This month, one of our cards had to be a shaped card (could not be square or rectangle in shape). This card came together much more quickly than I expected it to. Out came my craft knife and different shades of green paper and I began randomly cutting curvy lines to make the grass look like it is being blown in the wind. I ended up layering 4 colors to achieve this look. My "rock" was some Basic Gray cardstock from SU that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Pebbles embossing Folder which I then sponged, covered in Versamark and embossing powder to give it a wet look. The turtle has been popped up on dimensionals. All in all, I LOVE how this card turned out and am thinking a shaped card might be in the works every month (notice the might - I didn't say it would be).
