This week's special at Serendipity Stamps is Free Shipping on all orders over $10.00.
The shipping special ends on August 13, 2012.
We were given the theme of Happy Retirement for our theme.
Check out what the team came up with:
Also, soon we will have some very talented new members joining the Serendipity Team, so get ready for some great ideas and lots of eye candy using Serendipity images!
I used the Happy Retirement sentiment on the inside of the card, leaving the front wide open for whatever image I had a fancy for! This Tulip Vase image had never seen ink before today. So I pulled it out to rectify that ASAP! Love this floral vase that can be used for so many things. I kept the layout really simple, leaving the image to be the focal point.
Here are the Copics I used. RV0000 and RV00 used for a soft little glow around the image -- doesn't show up great in the pic. BG93, 96 and 99 were used on the leaves. The vase is W7, 5 and 2. Flowers R85 and R81. I softly used the Blender pen on the leaves and the flowers to remove a little color, giving me a little more depth in the colors.
The sentiment cut out with Spellbinder's Mega Ovals and added on the inside. Before removing it from the die I added my piercing, using the inside edge of the die as a guide. My ribbon scraps added too!
Bling and bow to finish things up. I also added a tiny amount of Crackle Accents over the vase... I smushed it around with my finger flattening it out. Just to add a little shine and texture. A little foam tape between layers too!
