Thinking of You- Wetlands with Moon Lake :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

Here is another card that I created this weekend using the CQC283 ColourQ Challenge along with the FMS178 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. 

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time visit the above sites- wonderful Design Teams and inspiration from both galleries!

To create this card:

Using My Digital Studio, position the Wetlands Canadian Goose image onto a blank screen and print out onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image along with a circle the same size from Basic Black cardstock.

Color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Smoky Slate Classic Ink for the body (in place of Going Gray) and Stampin’ Write markers- Lucky Limeade (in place of Kiwi Kiss) for the grass and Basic Black to darken the neck and head areas as well as add a few more details on the feathers.

Split the Basic Black cardstock circle in half and adhere behind the goose image to allow just a bit of the layer to show.

Adhere two strips of retired Lucky Limeade Designer Series Paper (DSP) to strips of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the piece of Moonlight DSP. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the two strips of Basic Black cardstock (I had these in my scraps and they were previously embossed with the retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). 

Add the 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon strips to the retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware and secure with brads to the focal image.

Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Create the points using the Hexagon Punch and punch another Word Window piece from Basic Black cardstock, use the Hexagon Punch to create the banner, split in half and mount behind the stamped sentiment.

Mount the focal image onto the card front and add the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Wetlands (MDS version), Moon Lake

Ink: Printer Ink- Black; Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Smoky Slate Classic Ink, Stampin’ Write Markers- Basic Black and retired Lucky Limeade

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Moonlight DSP, retired Lucky Limeade DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, Circle Collection Framelits™, Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches- Word Window, Hexagon; 1 ¼” Burlap Ribbon, retired Antique Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware

Thanks again for visiting- have a great Sunday!!

Perfect stamp for those colours Julie - the touch of twine gives it a gorgeous rustic feel and you've reminded me I have heaps of SU metal hardware currently sitting unused in my stash! Thanks for playing along this week!

The image is shown off perfectly. I love the strips of burlap ribbon - it's very eye-catching and gives such a natural look! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
