TCC138 Anchor the Soul

Hi Friends!

Isn't this a fun table setting for summer?  I love the nautical theme as well as seashells and was inspired to create a vintage style Mixed Media card.  
I decided to pull out the Anchor The Soul stamp set (Divinity Designs LLC) and paired it with a few retired Stampin’ Up! sets, Stipple Seashells and Timeless Textures along with some patriotic designer paper from Authentique.

I am also making my way through the Splitcoaststampers sketches and used Sketch Challenge #SC383 sketch  (from 2012- the SCS Challenges do not have a deadline) for the layout and will be participating with the Sweet Stampers Challenge “Something Beginning with a B” (B= Bird, Beach, Blue, Brown, Bible Verse), the Simon Says Monday “Shoot for the Stars” Challenge and the Tuesday Throwdown #460 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

To create this card:

Ink the main image and verse from Anchor The Soul along with the seashell images from Stipple Shells using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat set with a heat tool.

Watercolor the main image and seashells using watercolor pencils and water-based markers.

Once you are satisfied with the coloring, die cut the main image and verse sentiment with stitched dies.  Mount the sentiment onto a circle die cut from navy cardstock and the square die cut image onto navy cardstock, trimming close to the edge.

Mount the designer papers onto white cardstock, trim close to the edge and layer onto the card front per the sketch.  Add the ribbons and knotted hemp twine before adding the main image and sentiment with dimensional foam. 

Adhere the entire panel to the white card base.

Add texture with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures using Vintage Tea Distress Archival Ink (stamping off before adding to the images) and sponging a bit around the edges of the seashells.

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the sand as well as the seashells.  

Mount the seashells onto the card front with dimensional foam and finish off the card using a silver metallic paint marker for the metal on the anchor.

Your card is amazing, Julie. I love all the mixed media elements. I certainly struggle with that but your cards just come together perfectly!
