SUO175 Farewell to The Wilderness Awaits
It’s time for the #175 “Mainly Masculine” Challenge atSU-Only Challenges! I am so sad to see that The Wilderness Awaits is one of the stamp sets on the Stampin’ Up! retired list so I decided to create a card using the fox image as well as the sentiment.
I also incorporated the FabFri #112 Color Challenge along with the Match The Sketch #177 Sketch Challenge and the Simon Says Monday “Little Critters” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the fox image from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set using Basic Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use the AquaPainter™ to color with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils- Calypso Coral and Basic Black. Use the water brush with ink from the Rich Razzleberry and Dapper Denim Classic Ink Pads to water color the sky area.
2). Use the Heat Tool to dry the panel and die cut the image with the Stitched Shapes Framelits™. Die cut another oval using the same size framelit™ from black cardstock, split in half and mount behind the fox image so just a bit of the black shows.
3). Using the AquaPainter™, watercolor Dapper Denim and Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Ink the small splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (another set to be retired) with Archival Basic Black ink, stamp off and stamp onto the panel several times. Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Mount the entire panel onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
4). Stamp the sentiment from The Wilderness Awaits with Versamark™ onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. Hand trim and create the banner points.
5). Mount the fox oval image with Stampin’ Dimensionals and add the sentiments to finish off the card.
