A Final Farewell to the Dynamic Duos

Hi Stampers! 

This week is the 100th Dynamic Duos Challenge and will not only be the final challenge for my time on the Design Team as well as the final challenge for the Dynamic Duos!  It has been my honor to participate with my fellow Designers as well as Anne Marie and Lesley and I will miss this weekly challenge. 

I decided to incorporate the Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC199Sketch Challenge along with the DD100 Dynamic Duos “Triple Threat” colors- So Saffron, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.

I hope you will have the time to visit and check out the rest of the fantastic Design Team projects as well as create your own and share with us in our final Dynamic Duos Challenge :-)!

To create this project:

Create a sun mask using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch from a sticky note- use a Sponge Dauber with So Saffron Classic Ink to create the sun and reflection on the water.  Use a Sponge Dauber with Pool Party Classic Ink for the sky and water.

Ink the boat image from Waves on the Sea using Smoky Slate Classic Ink and stamp onto the sponged scene.  Use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to accentuate the shadows and waves.

Ink the Notable Notions script stamp and stamp over the sky area, the compass image from The Open Sea using Smoky Slate and stamp over the sun.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool along with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit of distressing. Trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.

Ink the ledger stamp from The Open Sea using Smoky Slate Classic Ink onto Smoky Slate cardstock.  Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges of the cardstock and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. 

Adhere the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the I Am Me DSP onto Basic Black cardstock, adhere to the Smoky Slate background.   
Add the Basic Black cardstock strips (embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder-difficult to see in the photo).  I used a combination of four strips to allow the knotted Natural Linen Thread to be inserted under the top strip.
Mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, add the sentiment and wrap the Natural Linen knotted “ropes” to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: The Open Sea, Notable Notions, Waves on the Sea (ODBD)
Ink: So Saffron, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Stampin’ Write Marker- Basic Black, Smoky Slate
Paper/Cardstock:  Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Epic Day This and That DSP, I Am Me DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Sticky Notes for Masking, Color Spritzer Tool, Natural Linen Thread

Thanks again for stopping by - I hope all of you have a wonderful week and a chance to join in on our final “DD100 Triple Threat” Challenge!

Such an amazing card, Julie! Just WOW. God has blessed you with buckets of talent! I'm so glad we were on the design team together. And I want to tell you that I don't really care for the vintage style -- BUT I love every card you make. You are just that talented!
