Seahorse Thinking of You - Another Color and Sketch Challenge
Here is a card that I created using the CCMC312 Color Challenge along with the SC497Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge.
I hope you will find the time to visit both challenge sites- great inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the script stamp from By the Tide using Sahara Sand Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp the seahorse from By The Tide over the script using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp another seahorse onto a sticky note (or scrap paper) to create a mask, mask the image that you stamped on the Whisper White cardstock. Ink the coral stamp from By the Tide using Hello Honey Classic Ink and stamp over the masked seahorse image.
Ink the Nantucket stamp from By The Tide using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp off onto scrap paper before stamping onto the cardstock.
Add a bit of distressing using the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp with Sahara Sand Classic Ink.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with the same size window from a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Cut the Blackberry Bliss window framelit™ in half and layer behind the seahorse image.
Use a Sponge Dauber to lightly sponge Hello Honey Classic Ink around the edges- oops! I had to do this step since I accidentally had some ink from coloring a white button (that I decided not to use) and had a few yellow smudges on the outside of image- duh! :-)
Ink the World Map background stamp using Sahara Sand Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Adorning Accent Edgelit™ and cut a piece of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Trim the Moonlight panel and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss layer. Sponge a bit of Hello Honey Classic Ink around the edges as well :-)
Add the 3/8” Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon bow to the center and adhere the layered seahorse image per the sketch.
Ink the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp along the bottom.
Color the Pearls using the Dark Daffodil Delight Blendabilities™ marker and add to the lower portion of the DSP layer to finish off the card.
