Happy Father's Day!

Hi Again Friends!

I wanted to share another card that I had fun creating this weekend using the Pals Paper Arts PPA304 Sketch Challenge (I flipped the sketch) along with the CC586 Color Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “Father’s Day/Guy Card” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful ideas and projects by all!

To create this card:

Ink the Stampin’ Up! From the Land to Sea sailfish image with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the image with an AquaPainter™ and ink from Stampin’ Write Markers- Pool Party, Marina Mist and Garden Green, fussy cut the image and add Clear Wink of Stella® to the fins and body.

FYI- I used a modified version of the Smakin' Acetate technique for the background and focal image panels :-)

To create the background, open up a clear envelope and press Pool Party and Marina Mist onto the acetate, spritz with water, close the envelope and “smoosh” the ink with your fingers through the acetate, open the envelope and press a 2 ½” x 4 ¼” panel of Whisper White cardstock into the ink, mount the panel onto Garden Green cardstock.

Repeat the above process with a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” panel of Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and adhere to a piece of Garden Green cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with retired Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Folder to emboss a piece of Marina Mist cardstock, cut the embossed panel with the MFT Stitched Circle STAX die (I already had this piece embossed and cut in my scrap paper stash :-)).

Add the embossed circle to the card front and mount the splattered panel to the card front with dimensional foam (per the sketch).

Use a Sponge Dauber with Marina Mist Classic Ink to add a bit more color for the “water”, adhere the looped Silver Cord and mount the sailfish image with dimensional foam.

Ink the sentiment from More Great Greetings with Versamark™ Ink, de-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Cut the sentiment apart and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
