CAS By The Tide- A Quick Aquatic Card
I had a chance to play in my craft room this evening and decided to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the Colour...Me! "Striking" CMCC84 Challenge along with the CASology #159 Aquatic Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers CAS335 “Let’s Get Beachy” Challenge.
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fabulous galleries!
This card was quick and easy to create:
Use the Big Shot™ with the MFT Stitched Rectangle Die to cut out a rectangle from Whisper White cardstock.
Repeatedly stamp the coral using Tangerine Tango Classic Ink (stamping off on a few of the images before stamping onto the panel) and use a Sponge Dauber to apply Tangerine Tango around the edges and into the coral area a bit :-).
Stamp the script image (stamping off before stamping onto the panel) along with the Nantucket image using Cucumber Crush Classic Ink.
On another piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp fish image just once along with the seahorse with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp another fish image onto acetate and transfer to Whisper White cardstock (this will give you the "mirror" image :-)) ***FYI- you can use a clear envelope versus acetate as well ***
Color the seahorse and fish images using Tangerine Tango and Cucumber Crush Classic Ink and “fussy-cut” out the images.
Mount the rectangle die cut onto the Whisper White card base along with the aquatic images using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add a few highlights to the fish using a White Gel Pen to finish off the card.
I decided to leave the sentiment off so I can add as needed in the future :-)
