Walk on the Wild Side- A Watercolor Birthday :-)
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far! This past weekend, while I had the new set, Walk in the Wild and along with the 2013-2015 In Colors out, I decided to create a masculine card using the Moose image. I am so thrilled with the realistic art forms in this set :-)!
I also incorporated a modified version of the Splitcoaststampers SC440 Sketch (added a central panel - hope that was OK) :-)
To create this card:
Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, stamp the Moose image onto Whisper White cardstock. Using the AquaPainter™, pick up ink from Cool Cabana for the sky, Baked Brown Sugar for the Moose and Pistachio Pudding for the grass.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and with Sponge Daubers, apply Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink along with a bit of Early Espresso Classic Ink to the edges. Adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and distress the edges as well. Use the Color Spritzer Tool along with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit more distressing.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
Ink the smooth interior of the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and emboss a piece of Cool Cabana cardstock. Cut this embossed piece into thirds and add one third at the top of the Early Espresso card base and the other third at the bottom (save the extra piece for another card later).
Add the knotted Hemp Twine (retired) to the embossed Baked Brown Sugar layer and add this to the card base. Adhere the Moose focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the Large Oval Punch, distress and sponge the edges, spritz with the marker as above and add to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock punched with the Artisan Label Punch to finish off the card.
