Bravo! You Did It!

Hi Friends!

I had another chance to play around the Smakin’ Acetate technique today (see the Splitcoaststampers’ tutorial here) and decided to use the PaperCraft Crew PCCCS189 Sketch Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers’ CC564Color Challenge and the Cards for a Cause April C4AC38 Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, I highly encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

For the background, cut open a clear envelope (I slit the one side, top and bottom of a clear packaging envelope to create an opening like a book), add Pacific Point  and Cucumber Crush Classic Ink directly to the inside of the clear envelope, spritz with water and “close” the top part of the envelope.

Smoosh the ink inside with your fingers, open the envelope and two pieces of Whisper White cardstock down onto the ink on both sides of the envelope.

Dry the panels with the Heat Tool and set one aside for a future project.

Trim the “smooshed” background panel, repeatedly stamp the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Sahara Sand Classic Ink over the background, mount onto Sahara Sand cardstock, trim and mount onto the Pacific Point card base.

Ink the sentiments from Bravo using Pacific Point Classic Ink and stamp onto the card front.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Banner Framelits™ to cut out the banner from Whisper White, Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point cardstock and use the Lots of Tags Framelits™ to cut the tag element from Sahara Sand cardstock.

Emboss the Whisper White banner with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto the Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush banners.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the Sahara Sand tag, cut off the one end of the tag and attach behind the layered banner.

Mount the banner onto the card front with dimensional foam, add the stamped Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush strips to the top (also mounted with dimensional foam) along with the retired Silver Basics Designer Button.

Using the Black Stampin’ Archival Ink Pad, stamp the sailfish image (From Land to Sea) onto Whisper White cardstock, heat set the ink with the Heat Tool and use an AquaPainter™ with Sahara Sand and Pacific Point Classic Ink to watercolor the image.

Fussy cut the sailfish, add Clear Wink of Stella® over the image and mount onto the layered banner with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  From Land to Sea, Timeless Textures, Bravo

Ink: Basic Black Stampin’ Archival, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand, Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Banner and Lots of Tags Framelits™, Boho Chic and Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, AquaPainter™, Silver Basics Designer Button (retired)

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope you have a wonderful week, my friends!

Oh - that looks like such a fun, inky technique! I'm going to have to give it a try. Beautiful colours that you chose, Julie. It looks like that fish is jumping straight out of the water. Thanks for joining us again at the Paper Craft Crew challenges. ~Deborah
