Afternoon folks and welcome to a post to remind you that the latest challenge over at STAMPlorations. is ongoing until the end of the month.
Here is my card for your inspiration -
As always it's up to you whether to go with the theme or the sketch or go with both.
For my card I went with the theme!
As the challenge over at Less is More is The Sea, I looked out my nautical STAMPlorations sets, True North and Anchored for this project. This is a OLC so I planned what I wanted to use to make my panel then masked of the card with Post its to create a panel to ink.
To start I used some DIs in Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Peacocks Feathers, then stamped some elements such as the anchor, compass and text in the same colours. Now, I left it for a long time to allow the ink to dry as I wanted to heat emboss the next set of stamps an EP has a nasty habit f stickin to bits you don't want!.
I took the yacht and stamped it across the panel, then masked it and added some waves, all embossed in white. This allowed me to use plain water, a paint brush and kitchen roll to bleach out the colour from the sails. I then washed in some Gathered Twigs DI over the hull. I then used a Memento brown ink to stamp the greeting from the Noteworthy set. To sharpen up the edges of the panel and add a little interest, I scored along the reverse of the panel to create a raised border.
As usual all Ts and Cs are on the main blog, as are the fab DT's inspiration projects as well as this month's fab GDs, Jane, Pooja and Bozena.
So why not pop over and then join n.
