By The Tide- Congratulations
Hi Again Friends!
I had fun this weekend stamping images, coloring and fussy-cutting (I know, sounds like fun- right :-)?)!
Anyway, I decided to put together one more card this evening/ morning and used the fussy-cut Lobster from By The Tide along with the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC401Sketch, the CC557 Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) Color Challenge and Alphabet Week 12 “L” Challenge (“L”for Lobster).
I hope you will take the time to visit the above galleries- so much inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the entries!
Other than the fussy-cutting of the lobster, this card was fairly easy to create:
Heat set the image with the Heat Tool and use an AquaPainter™ with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink to color the lobster and add additional shadows with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.
Carefully fussy-cut the image, add Clear Wink of Stella® over the entire Lobster and set aside.
Ink the square stamp from Work of Art with Soft Sky Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Add additional splatter with Timeless Textures and Soft Sky Ink, trim to a square image (I used the Big Shot™ with the Square Framelits™ and mount onto Basic Black cardstock (trimming close to the edge).
Emboss a piece of retired Wild Wasabi Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a square of Basic Black cardstock (also die cut with the Square Framelits™).
Mount the Soft Sky layered square onto the Wild Wasabi DSP square using dimensional foam and add the Lobster image with dimensional foam as well.
Create the Soft Sky banner using Soft Sky cardstock and the Banner Triple Punch, ink the Timeless Textures stamp with Soft Sky Classic Ink and stamp over the entire banner.
Layer the banner onto a Basic Black banner created in the same manner as above but cut a bit wider.
Create the Wild Wasabi strip in the same manner as the Soft Sky banner (using Wild Wasabi cardstock and ink) and once the banner has been layered, cut it in half.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Mount the banners, the layered Lobster panel and sentiment to finish off the card.
