The Wilderness Awaits- You've Got This!

Hi Again Friends!

Here is the another card that I created this morning using the FMS231 Freshly MadeSketches Challenge along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSCC235 ColorChallenge (I did use Blackberry Bliss cardstock although it looks very dark in the photo.

This will be another design for the Splitcoaststampers’ April 2016 Cards for A Cause (see here for more details).

I hope you will take the time to visit the above galleries- so much inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the entries!

To create this card:

Ink the Elk image from The Wilderness Awaits using Basic Black Stampin’ Archival Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Heat set the image with the Heat Tool, use an AquaPainter™ with Smoky Slate Classic Ink to color the Elk and the rocks,  add additional shadows with the Smoky Slate and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker. 

Color the sky area with the AquaPainter™ and Pool Party Classic Ink, trim the panel, mount onto Pool Party cardstock, trim and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.

Cut a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock on an angle, add to the card front and adhere a strip of Pool Party cardstock down the center.

Ink the sentiment from You’ve Got This with Stāz-On® Stone Gray Ink, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, add the Pool Party ink in the background with the Work of Art square background stamp, cut out the image using the Big Shot™ and the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Stitched Square Dies.

Mount the sentiment onto Pool Party cardstock, trim and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

Create the photo corners with a 1 ⅜” Square Punch (punch a notch in the corner of the cardstock with just one corner of the punch, re-insert the punched cardstock to the desired width of the photo corner, punch again with the square punch and cut the diagonal line with scissors).

Add the photo corners to the sentiment along with Antique Brass Brads.

Mount the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

I would not have thought of this color combo as masculine but you made it work! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
