Traveler- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Again Stampers!

I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far!  I rearranged my stamping area this week and did not have a chance to stamp until last night, so I wanted to share one more card that I was able to complete for a few of my favorite challenges- the SR271 Sketch Challenge using the FM201 FridayMashup! Color Challenge and the Splitcoaststampers F4A260 Double, Triple Challenge (three inks, three elements- see the details here and the gallery here). 

Again, I hope you have the time to stop by the above sites to check out the terrific inspiration from the Design Teams as well as the other entries!

To create this card:

Ink the ship stamp from Traveler using the Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the MFT Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the image. 
Color the image using an AquaPainter™ with Pacific Point Classic Ink for the ship’s hull and the ocean. 

Create a mask using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and sponge Pacific Point along with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink over the sky area (using the AquaPainter™ to blend over the moon, etc.).  Add color using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write marker for the smoke, the Rich Razzleberry as well as Pacific Point markers to add additional detail to the ship and Basic Black to add waves and a few birds to the sky.

Sponge a bit of Pacific Point Classic Ink over the edges and mount onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Add the bitty flag with a scrap of DSP (I did not line up the stamped image low enough on the die- oops!) :-)

Create the banners with the retired Banner Blast set using Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink and punch out with the Banner Punch.

Add the banners to the back of the focal image along with another one from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of retired High Tide Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock.  Trim and mount the panel onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Collection Framelits™ to cut a portion of a large circle from the retired High Tide DSP as well as Pacific Point cardstock. 

Mount the circles onto the card front and add a vertical strip of the High Tide DSP (Smoky Slate with anchors adhered to Pacific Point cardstock).

Add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the three retired Circle Brads to finish off the card (FYI- I removed the brad points and used Hot Glue to mount the brads).

Your creations are always wonderful, but this one is absolutely incredible. Love the colours, and the mood they create, especially the clouds drifting across the moon.
