Your Labor in the Lord- Two Challenges in One

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card using a few images that I had previously printed out from My Digital Studio (MDS) and decided to use the FabFri47 Sketch Challenge along with the Just Add Ink JAI225 Color Challenge.

I hope you will have time to check out the both challenge sites - so much inspiration!!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the ship and compass images from The Open Sea and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.  

Add shadows to the sails, ocean and compass using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collection and add a few more waves using a Sakura .005 Micron Pen.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Deco Label Collection Framelits™ to cut out the ship image and the Circle Framelits™ for the compass (cutting an extra piece from Basic Black cardstock).   Cut the Basic Black frames in half and spread about a bit behind the images to allow a bit of the Basic Black to show.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of I Am Me Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere this panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Add the ship focal image with a few scraps of Basic Black cardstock on the sides, adhere the layered sentiment (from Our Daily Bread stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, trimmed and mounted onto Basic Black cardstock) and compass using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the Basic Gray Candy Dots to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea (MDS version), Serve The Lord (Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Blendabilities™- Smoky Slate Collection, Sakura .005 Micron Pen

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, So Saffron DSP (retired I Am Me DSP)

Accessories: Big Shot™, Deco Label and Circle Collection Framelits™, Wooodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Candy Dots

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!!

Those colors always create stunning cards and your shadings of the ship and water really make it look like it's fully underway! A beautiful card.
