Amazing You- A Color, Sketch and Technique Challenge

Hi Friends!

I had a chance to play around with some ink today and decided to create a Mixed Media card using the Pals Paper Arts PP295 Color Challenge along with the Global Design Project GDP030 Sketch and the Just Us Girls Trend Week JUGS338 “Smooshing”Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, again, I highly encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the script image from By the Tide using Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Once the embossing powder has cooled, use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Stitched Horizontal Strip Dies to cut out the image and mount onto Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim the edges and set aside.

For the background, cut open a clear envelope (I slit the one side, top and bottom of a clear packaging envelope to create an opening like a book), add Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush Classic Ink directly to the inside of the clear envelope, spritz with water and “close” the top part of the envelope.

Smoosh the ink inside with your fingers, open the envelope and two pieces of Whisper White cardstock down onto the ink on both sides of the envelope.

Dry the panels with the Heat Tool and set one aside for a future project.

Cut out the “smooshed” background panel with the Big Shot™ using the MFT Blueprints 13 Die (the large stitched rectangle), ink the splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp repeatedly onto the panel.

Dilute Black Gesso® with water and use a small paint brush to splatter the Gesso® over the panel.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Memory Box® Delicate Border Die to cut the border and mount onto the background panel.

Stamp the sentiment from the retired Express Yourself hostess stamp set with Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

Adhere the background panel to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Using the Black Stampin’ Archival Ink Pad, stamp the jellyfish image (From Land to Sea) onto Whisper White cardstock, heat set the ink with the Heat Tool and use an AquaPainter™ with Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush Classic Ink to watercolor the image.

Fussy cut the jellyfish and add Clear Wink of Stella® over the entire image.

Mount the horizontal script panel and jellyfish using dimensional foam.

Add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  From Land to Sea, By The Tide, Timeless Textures, Express Yourself (retired Hostess set)

Ink: Versamark™, Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Cucumber Crush, Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper/Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay

Accessories:  Big Shot™, MFT Stitched Horizontal Strip Dies, MFT Blueprints 13 Dies,  MB Delicate Border Die, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White  and Black Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Black Gesso®, Rhinestones

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I hope you have a terrific week, my friends!

Beautiful! That background is amazing. I like your "cleaner" way to do the smooshing with a clear envelope, brilliant. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

Julie, The jellyfish is my fav stamp....I was obsessed using it at one time! However, your friend blows my away..both the snipping of perfection and color! Then the background you created is so happy you inspired me and thanks for playing along with the Pals color challenge this week!
