just beachy

This is a card I made for a recent swap from the SU! Occasions Mini catalog, which has some great items available until June30. I used the Just Beachy stamp set, as well as the Lazy Days jumbo wheel, and the new Jumbo Grommets. I used a jumbo uninked cartridge, and added drops of reinkers so the whole thing was covered, then wheeled it onto cardstock to get the rainbow effect. It worked out well, I was worried it would give a "muddy" effect, but the colors didn't bleed too much, and looked pretty good (I thought). I also used the SU! texturz plates on a couple of the circle punches, and although it's hard to see, I used one of the "leftover" acrylic circles from the build a brad kit on the fish in the upper left corner. It looks like a pool of crystal effects, but no waiting for drying time!!! To keep the ribbon from buckling, I did flatten 2 of the teeth on the grommet, so it wouldn't pierce through and wrinkle the ribbon. I hope you like it, I thought it was bright and summery.
