Late Summer Sunset on the Shore- A Sketch and Color Challenge



Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card using the CCMC266 Colors at Create with Connie and Mary along with the FabFri25Sketch Challenge and a final farewell to summer card for our Virtual Swap at The Card Gallery on Facebook. 

Again, I hope you will have the time to stop by and visit each site- so much inspiration!!

To create this card:
Use the 1” Circle Punch to punch out a circle from a sticky note or other piece of paper to use as a mask for the sun (also place a piece straight across to create the horizon) and place onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Using a Sponge Dauber, apply Crushed Curry Classic Ink in the circle to create the sun, remove the mask and cover the recently sponged sun with the circle to protect the Crushed Curry and sponge a bit of Crushed Curry along with Tangerine Tango over the sky area.
Remove the masks and apply the same colors for the water area (remember horizontal motions across the paper).  Soften the ink using the AquaPainter™ with water being careful not to use too much water. 
Add the island/inlet areas using additional masks and Chocolate Chip Classic Ink (adding a few shadows in the water as well). 
Stamp the script image from Notable Notions using Tangerine Tango Classic Ink over the sky area and add a few birds with the Stampin’ Write Chocolate Chip marker.
Add the birds from Wetlands using Chocolate Chip Ink as well as the grasses along the side.  Darken the birds using the Stampin’ Write Chocolate Chip marker and add a few white highlights on the water and grasses with the Chalk Marker- trim and layer onto a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.
Using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, stamp the Notable Notions script and the Wetlands shore birds onto a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock.   Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the panel, trim and adhere to a piece of Whisper White and again onto the Chocolate Chip card base.
Adhere the sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Word Window Punch) under the focal image and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 
Add the starfish from By The Seashore using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card – FYI- this is an image that I had previously printed using My Digital Studio and re-sized a bit smaller than the original stamp- used an AquaPainter™ with Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango Classic Ink along with Chocolate Chip and Chalk Marker highlights. 

Stamp Sets: Wetlands, By The Seashore, Notable Notions, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Punches- 1” Circle and Word Window


Thanks again for stopping!!  I hope you have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!!
