Dude - Happy Birthday! Jaded Blossom May Release Day 4

It's time for the  Jaded Blossom May Release Sneak Peek Day 4! I think today's stamp set is one of my all time favorites - maybe even my absolute favorite. But that's because I like turtles!!! And I know that you will like the cute little turtle and the fun sentiments on this set too!

Today the Jaded Blossom DT is showcasing projects using the new Turtley Rad stamp set.

I decided to ink up the turtle and to stamp directly to my back panel for a one layer clean and simple look! I also decided to continue layering on the greens to give it a monochromatic feel. I just love how it turned out!!! Using the smaller version of the turtle, I made some candies to match.

Other Jaded Blossom products used; Card Mat Dies, Funny Bunny, and Paint Splatters 2

Isn't this just the cutest!!! My son saw it and just loved it! He asked me to make a non birthday version for a friend of his at school who also really likes turtles. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design's new Anchor's Aweigh collection. I used Papertrey Ink's New Leaf cardstock for the base. Everything was stamped directly onto the background panel. When I stamped on the turtle though, it looked as if he was just floating around; so I used a stamp from Paint Splatters 2 to give him some dirt to walk through. So that my pile of dirt didn't get too large and my turtle didn't get splattered as well, I masked both the turtle and part of the stamp. 

I used Copic Markers to color the turtle. I don't have many markers, but luckily I have just the right colors to work for this guy. I am by no means proficient with my markers (not even close), but I am excited for the challenge of learning. I need to work on my blending technique for sure. And with cute JB images like this, I can't help but want to learn!!! I think that is the best part about crafting and other hobbies - always getting a chance to improve your skills and trying new techniques. 

Here is a photo of today's new stamp set:
