World Map Thank You - Three Challenges in One!
Another week has gone by and time for the Dynamic Duos DD96 “Your Choice” Week- Gumball Green with your choice of color – I decided to use Pool Party as the second color and create a fun “Thank You” card using the Mojo Monday Mojo338 Sketch and a watercolor technique for the FM153 Friday Mashup! Watercolor Wonders Challenge.
Again, I hope that you will find the time to stop by and check out the rest of the fabulous Dynamic Duos Design Team projects and create a project of your own using this week’s colors - we would love to have you join us!!
I decided to use My Digitial Studio (MDS) to print out the World Map stamp brudh image (reduced in size) onto Whisper White cardstock (but you could easily stamp the background stamp onto Whisper White cardstock using Basic Black Classic Ink or StazOn™).
Using an AquaPainter, apply Pool Party Classic Ink onto the ocean and sea areas, Crumb Cake and Gumball Green Classic Ink onto the land areas of the map.
Hand tear the paper into a loose circle shape for the MoJo338 sketch and apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink to the edges using a Sponge Dauber as well as a bit of distressing with the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (DSP), trim and adhere to a Basic Black cardstock layer.
Adhere a the piece of Gumball Green/Pool Party DSP to a Basic Black card base and add the embossed layer at an angle per the sketch.
Mount the map to the embossed panel and add the banners (created from the same DSP as the embossed layer using the Banner Punch and mounted onto scraps of Basic Black cardstock- I used pieces that had been previously embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the sentiment banner and Candy Dots to finish off the card.
