It has been a very long time since I made general swaps for a Stampin' Up! event. This year I was laid up in bed for several days and thought why not.
I have used the Waterfront stamp set and utilised my Stamparatus to make these cards. The message is from the Sheltering Tree stamp set.
The colours I used are Tranquil Tide, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper with inks - Night Of Navy, Tranquil Tide, Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Crushed Curry.
The water has a shimmer which was achieved by adding my favourite product - Wink of Stella. I think this ties in well with the Silver Glimmer paper peeking out down the side.
