Pretty Pink Posh & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Oh Happy Day! Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle are having a 2 day blog hop featuring designs from both teams - and some great prizes too! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Karolyn Loncon's blog! If you want to start from the beginning and get all the details (including the goods that are up for grabs) you can do that here at the Pretty Pink Posh blog or here at the Avery Elle blog!
I felt so lucky to be able to choose a set of stamps from Avery Elle - one of my favorite brands!!!  I'm feeling the summer vibe lately and chose The Reef set!  
I started by painting stripes in purple on a panel of watercolor paper.  I used Peerless watercolors and Canson XL paper.    
The panel on the inside of the frame was colored with distress ink.  I die cut the cover panel with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Elle-Ments.  I think the stitches on border compliment the stitches on the Pretty PInk Posh Scallop Oval Die.
I wanted my shaker to have an underwater look so I added lots of 4m, 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and Sparkling Clear Seed Beads.  
I made a cute tag with the same theme to share today! I'm calling this a faux shaker because it has layers like a window, but I didn't want all that dimension on a tag. I cut the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 Tag from kraft card stock - once with the windows and once without. (This die is really versatile! I layered some coral and a die cut lobster between the two layers.
I embellished it with starfish coral and shells and a good sprinkle of Sparkling Clear Sequins so it looks like it was just plucked from the ocean! 
Ready to see more designs created with Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle?  Your next stop is the super talented Heather Campbell!!  But before you go I hope you will leave me a comment.  There are  2 $25 Pretty Pink Posh gift certificates and 2 $25 Avery Elle gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. (Comments must be left by July 24, 2016. Winners will be announced on the PPP and Avery Elle blogs).  You need to comment to win!  Who knows?  The lucky winner just might be YOU! 

Here's a list of the blog hop order for today!
