I love you a ton + a video using Distress Ink two ways

Hey everyone! It's Michelle here and I have a tutorial showing you how to use Distress Inks two ways on one card. The first way creates a soft watercolor look while the other is bolder and more colorful!
You can watch the video below to see how it's done.

Hi all! Francine here. For this card, I used bright and happy colors! I made the background with the True Colors set. I stamped the paint brushes with dye inks. The orca is from Little Fellas and the sentiment is from All Washed Up

Hi everyone! Simonne here with an underwater card using all 4 of The Alley Way Stamps May release stamps! The whale, starfish and clam are from Something's Fishy, and the seaweed is from this month's FREE mini stamp set, Gill-Friend.  The coral is from Little Fellas and the sentiment is from All Washed Up.  I created the background using Tea Dye (for the sand), Salty Ocean and Broken China distress ink pads.

Hey all. Jeni here with a few more fish...can't stop with them!! I pulled these images from the free Gill-Friend set, the start fish is from the Something's Fishy set.

Hello!  It's Tracy here with a fun shaker card!  I used the Something's Fishy and Little Fellas sets to create a baby card.  I think the white and clear sequins in the background look like bubbles under the water!

Hi everyone it's Holly here and today I have a fun Dr. Seuss inspired card for you using some watercoloring. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue I thought it was a cute idea for a card using these cute first from the Free set this Month Gill-Friend. You can get this set free with any $40 order. The Sentiment is from the set All Washed Up also another new release this month.

Get Whale Soon

Anni here with a Get Whale card. I used the set Something's Fishy for this card.

Hi everyone! Simonne here with a card inspired by one of my favourite TV shows (which has now sadly finished) - TRUE BLOOD! So if you don't like the show or vampires in general, you might want to look away now, lol! I used the lipstick mark stamp from Ooh La La and created the vampire teeth by using the larger water droplet from All Washed Up.  The blood drip was created by stamping the smaller water droplet from All Washed Up in Rhubarb Stalk and then colouring with Copic markers. I added some glossy accents to the teeth and the blood drip for a bit of dimension (although it's hard to see in the photo). Finally, I stamped the sentiment (which is the name of the title song of the TV series) using Alphabet Soup.

Hello, hello!  Lisa here with a cute pick me up card!  This card was fun to create as I used Material paper for a soft feel on the background as well as a mix of gesso and spray mist to create a "splash" of water.  I fussy cut my cute little dolphin from the Gill Friend Stamp Set, and my sentiment is from the Something's Fishy Stamp Set.

Hello!  It's Tracy here with a card using the Something's Fishy set.  I colored in the shark with Copic Markers and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  To create the background, I used embossing paste and Distress Inks.

Hi everyone.. Holly here and I have a cute Christmas Card this week using the Starfish image from the Something's Fishy set. I created a fun background with some stencils to look like water splashes and sand. And then I created a fun background on the Stitched circle to look like the water meeting the sand. So fun... I stamped the sentiment using the Gabfest Alphabet set. And colored the starfish in with Copics and added some Wink of Stella.

Hi everyone! It’s Francine. Here is my newest card using the set Something's Fishy. I colored the shark with Copic markers and I created the "Jawsome" sentiment with the Alphabet Soup set.

Hello! Dana here with a flash back card (Cards using older TAWS stamps!). I used the cute airplane from Priceless Joy and paired it with a sentiment from Speak Easy!

Hi all!  Angel here with a card using Something's Fishy, All Washed Up and the Free with $40 set, Gill-Friend.

Hello, Emily here.  Today's card was made with the mini set called Gill-Friend.  This set is free with a purchase of $40 or more, during the month of May only.  I created the ocean wave using distress inks.  My fish was stamped and colored with Copics.  I bent the sentiment to go along the curve of the wave before stamping it.
