July–August 2020 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop brought to you from same the group who bring you the SOTM Blog Hop. Today we are featuring items created with products from the new CTMH Idea Book July–August 2020 catalog.

We have about 15 CTMH Independent Consultants sharing their creations on this hop. If you just happened upon my post, clicking the link to the next blog (often found near the bottom of the page) will take you full circle.

You should have arrived here from ***Katy Taylor's An Inside to My scrap at a time***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda also keeps a list of all blog hop participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

For this hop I created a card. I was inspired by the water and any thoughts that would help my mind think of cooler things during this heat wave. I am looking forward to the promise of temperatures lower than 90° and the possibility of rain. I hope Tropical Storm Fay is not impacting those on the East Coast too much.

I used White Daisy Pigment Ink and White Super Fine Embossing Powder to stamp and emboss the water bubbles. The fish was stamped with Intense Black and colored with the Watercolor Pencils, but I did not use a Water Brush. Unfortunately I was not able to capture this in a photo, but I used the Clear Shimmer Brush only on the fish's head, fins and tail. I also used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the water bubbles and where I colored the word "Chill".

Before you head to ***Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you do not have a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

If you have a few moments, please let me know what you think of my card. I am curious the impression people have of my cards and I enjoy reading the comments. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with the new products from CTMH. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings***.
