Where oh where…..

……..has this month gone? Certainly not in the pursuit of a suntan – hypothermia and webbed feet would be more likely LOL! I’m hoping I get this posted in time to link to the Pals Paper Arts challenge 137, which is a sketch challenge this time round.
nightnavy-open-sea The not quite navy card base has been stamped with the chart/ledger stamp using not quite navy ink. A circle of confetti cream cardstock has been stamped with the globe image in crumb cake ink and attached to the card base. The ship has been inked in not quite navy in, then cut out and attached to the globe layer using dimensionals. The compass has been stamped in cajun craze ink, then cut out with the 1 1/4” circle punch and attached using dimensionals. Linen thread has been wrapped around the left hand side of the card to add a little texture and balance.

  • Stamps: The Open Sea
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Cajun Craze
  • Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Confetti Cream

Double whammy

Sit down and take a deep breath. I’ve managed to participate in TWO challenges AND get a photo taken before the challenges close! I think that’s a first for me :) The two challenges are the ColourQ challenge 137:
I flipped the sketch to landscape and started with a crumb cake card base and added a subtle background using the swirl from Everything Eleanor and second generation stamping. I inked the stamp, then stamped onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping on the card – this produces a paler impression. I used the very vintage wheel with razzleberry ink onto white cardstock, then sponged a little crumb cake ink on the edges to soften them a little. This has then been trimmed and added to a navy layer with one scalloped side.
The label shape from Everything Eleanor has been stamped with bashful blue ink on white cardstock, and the sentiment added using navy ink. This has been trimmed and attached to the card using dimensionals. Two razzleberry coloured flowers have been cut out and attached to the top right hand corner of the label. A pearl in the centre of each flower finishes the card off.
