I used DARE TO SWIM today for my first card.
I made my background using the Wrinkle Free Distress technique and Distress Inks. When it was dry, I used my Original MISTI, and lined up my stamp where I wanted on the watercolor panel. I did this for the sentiment as well, closing the lid, and slightly readjusting, according to the grid lines.
I added some diamond glitter paper for a sparkly background, as well as some aqua metallic thread. I love how it turned out!

My second is a rather free form design using  
I made my background using acrylic paints, stencils, and my Gel Press. I decided to cut it off-square, and gave the black and pink back panels some interest by scoring at random intervals. My MISTI was perfect to restamp my images on top of the paint to get a solid image over the texture.
Thank you for stopping by!

Here is the complete list of the talented designers hopping today.
