LTXTS12 - This is not an old postcard. It's a new piece of crumb cake cardstock that was burned with my heat tool. I added some Stampin' Up! stamps and from a fellow cow hand, Deadbeat Mark. This was fun to do but I almost gave my family a heart attack when they smelled something burning! I assured them everything was ok. I used my aqua painter to color the state. Inks used are early espresso, cajun craze, cherry cobbler, and marina mist. If you were born in Texas, or born elsewhere (like me) but got here as fast as you could, or if you just like Texana, then we welcome you to play along with us on Texas Tuesdays. Texas Tuesdays are every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month. Just create something Texas-y and post it to your blog and leave your link in the comments and we'll go check it out!

For my card I used the Vintage Santa stamp from Stampabilities. The sentiment is a die from Peachy Cheap. To add some color to my stamped image I used Distress Oxide inks on a cotton swab.
The stamped background is En Francais from Stampin' Up!
This card was created using a varied array of supplies.
I started with SU! Whisper White cs. Using a dauber I applied TSUKINEKO pigment inks -- Toffee, Imperial Purple, Deep Lagoon and Spanish Moss. Then placing a few different stencils in the bottom right hand corner I applied Imperial Purple and Blue Lagoon. Then with Staz-On Black I stamped Textures Water Droplets (CM-T3) from Designs by Ryn. I added white gel pen to highlight the droplets. I used a stencil from Layers of Color Natural Flourish and daubed on Spanish Moss.
Then on another piece of cs I stamped the little seahorse from Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamp set. With my daubers I rubbed on the TSUKINEKO inks. Then I took my Stickles and added some glitz. Lastly I added some rhinestones and call it done. Hope you like my little trip to the ocean. It's been mighty chilly here in North Central Texas for the past week. I was just envisioning some warmer temps.
Designs by Ryn has a challenge going on right now. So if you…
