Enjoy The Adventure Ahead- Two Challenges in One!
Here is another card that I created this weekend using the HSSC190 Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch along with the CQC251 ColourQ Challenge.
I thought this would be a fun card for someone embarking on a cruise or a long, deserved vacation :-)
Again, if you have not visited either of the sites above, both sites have excellent Design Teams as well as other samples- great ideas from all!!
To create this card:
Use the 1 3/8” Circle Punch to punch out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and mask the area on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and add another mask at the bottom for the horizon.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Pretty in Pink to add a bit of pink to the sky, then follow with Calyspo Coral, Melon Mambo and finally add Concord Crush. Remove the circle mask and add a bit of Pretty In Pink, Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral to the sun/moon.
Repeat the colors in the water area leaving a light for the reflection of the sun/moon. Use an AquaPainter™ to soften and blend the colors.
Ink the ship image from Traveler using Concord Crush Classic Ink and stamp onto the sponged background. Use a Chalk Marker to lighten areas of the ship that need highlighting and darken areas with a Stampin’ Write Concord Crush marker.
Use the Sponge Dauber with Concord Crush to add a shadow for the ship and the Chalk Marker for highlights on the water. Trim and mount onto a piece of Concord Crush cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and mount onto a piece of Concord Crush cardstock (creating the banner points using the Hexagon Punch).
Create the second banner in the same manner (using retired Pretty in Pink Designer Series Paper) and adhere both banners to the top of the sponged background panel.
Ink the World Map image using Concord Crush Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using a Sponge Dauber, add Melon Mambo and Concord Crush Classic Ink, trim and mount onto a Concord Crush cardstock panel, trimming again and adhere onto the Pretty in Pink card base.
Stamp the postage stamp images using Concord Crush Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Sponge Pretty In Pink along with Calypso Coral ink over the images and cut out by hand (you could use the 1” Square Punch but it will cut part of the stamped image). Mount each of the postage stamp images onto squares punched from Concord Crush cardstock using the Postage Stamp Punch.
Adhere the focal image to the card front and add the “postage stamps” using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
