PP465 The Open Sea
I am sharing another card today that I created using scraps that I discovered during my recent craft room reorganization.
The main focal image and compass had been printed out from My Digital Studio (The Open Sea) a few years ago and decided to watercolor using the Splitcoaststampers CC763 "Lovely Coastal Blueberries" Color Challenge and included the optional dessert- Nautical.
I am also linking to Ann's PP465 Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players for the layout and the Word Art Wednesday #410-#411 "Anything Goes" Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will visit the above challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Trim a piece of white cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”. Ink the sentiment with Memento™ Tuxedo Black ink and stamp onto the lower right-hand portion of the panel.
Scribble the dark blue marker onto a silicone mat, spritz with water and press the panel into the ink to create the splatter background. Add a bit more texture with the splatter stamp inked with black ink.
Mount the panel onto a piece of aqua cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of hot pink cardstock.
Add the strip of corrugated blue cardstock, add the knotted silver cord (wrapping the ends behind the panel) and adhere the entire panel onto a white card base.
Watercolor The Open Sea images with water-based markers, trim and mount onto aqua cardstock, trim and mount onto hot pink cardstock.
Add the small photo corners from hot pink cardstock, insert silver brads and mount the layered image onto the card front with dimensional foam or chipboard.
Punch the compass image out using circle punches, die cut a piece of aqua cardstock and adhere the enter part of the compass with dimensional foam.
Insert a silver mini brad in the center and mount the compass onto the card front with dimensional foam.
Finish off the card with a clear glitter pen over the water and an extra fine white paint pen for the tops of the waves.
