I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I have created similar cards
in the past using one of my favorite sets, By The Tide and this time I used a modified
straw technique along with Sponge Daubers. For some reason, even though I am organizing, I have "misplaced" my brayers for the
moment (actually having a “senior moment”- I cannot
recall exactly where I stashed them- lol!! :-).
Again, if you have the
time, check out all of these sites for wonderful ideas and inspiration!
To create this card:
Drop a few drops from a Bashful
Blue re-inker onto Glossy White cardstock and using a straw, blow around the
ink (be careful, you will become "dizzy"- for me, more than usual :-)).
I modified the technique
and patted the ink dry using a scrap piece of paper and then sponged more Bashful
Blue Classic Ink over the background.
Stamp the script sentiment stamp from By The Tide repeatedly using
Bashful Blue ink as well.
Stamp the coral, seahorse,
shell, Nantucket sign and fish image over the background using Midnight Muse
Classic Ink (stamping off occasionally).
Stamp the sentiment (from soon to be retired Word Play), seashell, fish and
Nantucket sign image again using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White
cardstock as well.
Close up of background- the script faded a bit :-)
Trim the images to the
desired sizes and mount onto Midnight Muse cardstock. Adhere to the Whisper White panel (embossed
using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) and add the additional
images stamped onto Whisper White using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Thanks again for
visiting- I may use this as a graduation card (do you think a young lady would
like this one or only a guy card)?
