RRCB130 Come To Me

Hi Friends!!

I am so thrilled to be a Guest Designer for The Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #130 Sketch Challenge!

As many of you know, I have a personal goal to ink up some of my "unloved" sets as well as older favs,  so since one of the requirements for The Retro Rubber Blog Challenge Blog is to use stamps that are at least one year old,  I love playing along with their challenge!  

They have a very versatile sketch for the #130 Challenge- I think that this sketch would work for a CAS card as well as an elaborate layered card (I was inspired to create a fairly simple Mixed Media card). 
For this challenge, I pulled out one of my favorite retired Stampin’ Up! sets, By the Tide (circa 2013) and combined it with a current Divinity Designs, LLC (formerly Our Daily Bread Designs) stamp set, Scripture Collection 4 (circa 2010). 

To create this card:

De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, ink the By the Tide images with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and stamp onto the panel.  Apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. 

Once the embossing has cooled, water color with Distress Oxide inks as well as water-based markers (see below for colors).  Fussy cut each image and set aside.

For the background panel and center squares,  tap Distress Oxide inks onto a silicone mat (I used a combination ofTumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers), spritz lightly with water, mix the inks together a bit, press the panels into the ink and lift up to move the ink around the panels.

Repeat the steps above using a heat tool between layers until you are satisfied with the results.

Randomly stamp the script image from By The Tide using Black Soot Distress ink onto the larger background panel and the coral image with Peacock Feathers towards the bottom of the panel.

Trim the smaller panel for the three rectangles for the sketch, mount each rectangle onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.

De-static the background panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiment from Scripture Collection 4 with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto the panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Trim the panel, mount onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge and mount onto a white card base.

Mount the outside rectangles (per the sketch) directly to the card front and use dimensional foam to mount the center rectangle.

Add the fussy cut images directly to the card front and use dimensional foam to “pop” up the main fish in the center as well as the shell/seahorse in the lower left hand corner.

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the images as well as an extra fine white paint pen to add highlights to the eye of the center fish.

Finish off the card with a few clear Nuvo™ jewel drops.
