Come, Follow Me
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).
