This week at Clean and Simple Stamping, challenges are being combined with CAS-ual Fridays, here is the sketch:
And I came up with a couple cards:
I used a rectangular solid Stampin Up stamp(Great Shapes) to stamp the background, stamping a second time on the very bottom using Ranger Antique Linen distress Ink and after masking the 2 areas, stamped again using Tea Dye distress ink in between them. I misted the inked stamps with Ink Potion No. 9(supposed to help the flow of ink on stamps, but not so sure I'm sold on it). I then stamped 2 stamps from Annabelle Stamps All Things Grow and a sentiment from Verve(Wordy Birds). Layered on bazzill Java and popped up on bazzill white card.. Here's another view:
Here's my first card I made, but felt that it didn't really go with the sketch quite as well in that my top and bottom pieces of the panel were not the same. I know, there is creative liberty, I just generally tend to take sketches literally, so this card is a bit on the "wild side" for me:)!!
When I thought of this card...I had the idea to make sky, water and sand...not sure if anyone will "get" it but me, but that was my intent. I used the same stems from the Annabelle set as the first card with the sentiment from the same set. I used the small rick rack die from Papertrey Ink to make the "waves" and the Linen/Canvas impression/texture plate for the texture of the card from Papertrey Ink, as well. The paper: Stampin Up Bashful Blue and Marina Mist, some sand colored paper, and bazzill Java. Here's another view:
A fun challenge...how great to get to know of other like-minded challenges...thanks for looking!!
