I am still working my way through the Splitcoaststampers’ Sketch Challenges and decided to incorporate the SC461 Sketch into the layout for this card.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
Ink the lighthouse image from He Stilled the Storm with waterproof black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and heat set with a heat tool.
Watercolor the image using water-based markers and die cut with the coordinating die from the He Stilled the Storm bundle (die cut another lighthouse shape from white cardstock and layer behind the stamped/colored image).
Emboss a piece of vanilla cardstock with the 3-D Lumber embossing folder for the background panel along with a square shape for the central layering panel.
Trim the larger panel of embossed vanilla cardstock to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”. Adhere to a piece of navy cardstock, ink the edges with black soot distress ink
Trim the blue Graphic 45 Catch of the Day designer paper into a large square, cut on a diagonal and mount onto navy cardstock.
Ink the edges of the navy cardstock with black soot
distress ink and mount onto the opposite corners of the background panel.
Mount a piece of the red patterned paper from Catch of the Day onto a larger rectangle piece of navy cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment from He Stilled the Storm onto vanilla cardstock with waterproof black ink, heat set with a heat tool. Trim to fit the lower part of the navy rectangle from the step above.
Mount the rectangle onto the card front and adhere the card front to a white card base.
Stamp the ship wheel and rope image from He Stilled the Storm onto vanilla cardstock using waterproof ink, watercolor with water-based markers and die cut with the coordinating He Stilled the Storm dies.
Adhere the rope image directly to the seam of the red designer paper and sentiment layer.
Layer the embossed woodgrain vanilla cardstock onto navy cardstock and mount onto the rectangle panel.
Add the die cut colored He Stilled the Storm image using dimensional foam and mount the die cut ship wheel with dimensional foam as well.
To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the water.
