My card this week is inspired by page 130 of the new catalog. Although the stamp set ‘By the Tide’ is not new to the catalog there are many great ideas for projects throughout the catalog. Every time I look through the catalog I see something new. Every page is full of ideas on how to use different projects. This card features watercolor paper which gives your project an artistic feel.
I stamped the coral on the watercolor layer then went over some of the branches with an aqua pen. The fish, seahorse and seashell were stamped then fussy cut. I also stamped the edges of the watercolor paper with the dotted stamp from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ with Baked Brown Sugar. I used linen thread at the bottom and tied with white Baker’s twine I dyed with Pear Pizzazz.
To add sparkle I lightly added Dazzling Details to the card. It’s difficult to see but you should be able see it when you magnify the card.
The card is also based on the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments. I invite you to participate in the sketch challenge. I would love to see your creation. Visit Hand Stamped Sentiments to be inspired by our talented design team.
