Thinking of You- A Color, Sketch and Theme Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

This card was created using the CQC282 ColourQ Challenge (I substituted Marina Mist for Brocade Blue) along with the CCMC345 Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers’ WT521 “Hoop It Up” Challenge (details here and gallery here).   

I hope you will have the time to check out all of the linked sites- gorgeous creations and inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using Stāz-On© Jet Black Ink stamp the ship from Traveler, ledger and compass from The Open Sea, sentiment from Moon Lake onto Very Vanilla cardstock and the World Map onto Marina Mist and Soft Sky cardstock.

Cut the World Map images diagonally, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. 

Using a Sponge Dauber, apply Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to edges and over the background to “antique” the paper.

Add the strip of diagonal Basic Black cardstock as per the sketch (plus this covers the seams).

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut out the ship and ledger images plus a circle from a piece of Typeset Designer Series Paper (DSP)- also cut the same size circles from Basic Black cardstock to add as frames behind the images.

Create a moon mask from a piece of scrap paper and apply Soft Sky Classic Ink onto the ship image for the sky, mask the ship a bit and apply Marina Mist for the ocean.  

Color the ship using the Marina Mist Stampin’ Write marker and add a shadow for the ship along with a few birds in the sky with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker. 

Mount the image onto the split Basic Black circle frame, use a Distressing Tool to lightly distress the edges.

Do the same for the Typeset Designer Series circle as well as the ledger and compass.

Use the Marina Mist and Soft Sky Stampin’ Write markers to color the compass and use a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to “antique” the paper on all of the circle elements. 

Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp over all images and the background.

Mount the Typeset DSP and ledger circles to the card front.  Add the ship image along with the compass using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Use the Word Window Punch to punch out the sentiment, add the banner using the Hexagon Punch, apply Baked Brown Sugar with a Sponge Dauber and mount the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add a small Rhinestone to the center of the compass and a few larger ones to the diagonal Basic Black cardstock to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Traveler, World Map, The Open Sea, Moon Lake, Gorgeous Grunge

Ink: Stāz-On© Jet Black, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Baked Brown Sugar; Stampin’ Write Markers- Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Basic Black
