It’s finally here! The Spring 2016 Release from Avery Elle is available to buy NOW! I’m so excited about this release (not just because I have a fabby new stamp set featuring the most awesome creatures in the whole world ever) but because Jamie is introducing two amazing new product lines as well as an array of totally fabulous stamps and dies. By the time you finish this blog hop you won’t know where to start! You’ll want it ALL! You should have arrived here from the awesome Karolyn Loncons blog but if not you can head back to the Avery Elle blog so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
So onto my cards. Today I’m proud as punch to be showcasing my latest stamp design called Hello Chum. This is a set I’ve wanted to create since FOREVER – I’ve had a love affair with sharks since I was 6 years old and in particular with the Great White (I blame JAWS!). I have dived with sharks up close and personal in Australia but diving with a GW is top of my bucket list! I wanted this set to be a bit different though – I didn’t want the sharks to look cute, I wanted them to be menacing (but still happy!).
As you may have suspected, JAWS is one of my all time favourite movies and the sentiment “We’re Gonna Need A Bigger …. CAKE!” is my homage to that film! I created this card after being inspired by Kathy Racoosin on Day 1 of the current Daily Marker Challenge. The woodgrain effect is made using the Woodgrain and More stamp set.
The next couple of cards feature the other shark image from the set. I coloured them with Copics and used the brand new dye inks also being released today – they are amazing! I’m also in love with the large Tag die from this release (A Tag For All), I think I’m going to be making LOTS of use of this one!!
