Come, Follow Me

Hi Friends!

I am finally having a chance to post a few more cards that were designed recently and this card uses the retired Angler stamp set from Stampin’ Up! along with a sentiment from The Waves on the Sea stamp set (currently available at Divinity Designs LLC).

I enjoy participating with online challenges and will be linking this card to the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #140 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (middle row across  Twine, Rectangle, Embossing) along with the AllsortsChallenge #583/84 “Make It Masculine” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday  “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Angler stamp image and the sentiment using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto two separate panels of white cardstock and heat set with a heat tool. 

Using various brown water-based markers, watercolor pencils and distress ink, watercolor the main Angler image.  Die cut with a stitched square die, mount onto espresso cardstock and trim close to the edge.

Stamp the Angler fly fishing lure image using vintage tea archival ink, heat set and watercolor a bit of distress ink to age the paper.  Die cut the sentiment with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto espresso cardstock and trim close to the edge.

Emboss a piece of suede cardstock with a diamond embossing folder, trim and mount onto white cardstock, trim and mount onto espresso cardstock.

Emboss a piece of suede cardstock with a lattice embossing folder, mount onto espresso cardstock, trim and adhere to the background panel.

Mount the entire background panel to a white card base.

Add a piece of knotted twine to the card front, fraying the edges. 

Add pieces of cheesecloth behind the main image and sentiment, pulling to create a bit of distressing.  Mount the main image and sentiment to the card front with chipboard (or dimensional foam).

This is amazing! I love the vintage style you always embrace, and that Bible verse goes with the fishing theme perfectly. That diamond embossing is fabulous! Thanks for sharing this with us at Retro Rubber this week!
