PP242 Sail Away
This card was created using the Paper Players PP242 Sketch Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It WT515 “Use an Oval” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the USEIT2015 Challenge (see gallery here).
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites- they have wonderful Design Team samples as well as inspiration from their galleries!
I decided to use a retired stamp, Sail Away in a digital image from My Digital Studio (MDS) that I had previously printed and in my stash J
To create this card:
Print or stamp the Sail Away image onto Whisper White cardstock, cut with the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ and cut another oval from Basic Black cardstock.
Color the image with an AquaPainter™ along with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils and Pacific Point Classic Ink.
Create a mask from scrap paper for the moon and ocean horizon line, lightly sponge Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto the background and dilute with an AquaPainter™.
Add a few white highlights using Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen marker.
Trim the High Tide Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, add a scrap strip of Basic Black cardstock to cover the seam.
Create the banner strips of I Am Me and High Tide DSP using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto Basic Black cardstock (punching the banner points with the Hexagon Punch as well).
Mount the banner strips onto the card front and add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Moon Lake using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the Word Window Punch, create the banners using the Banner Punch and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
Using a few scraps from the same DSP, create the banner points using the Banner Punch and adhere behind the sentiment.
Mount the sentiment and add the retired Antique Copper Hodgepodge Hardware clip to finish off the card.
