Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!
Here is my card for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG59, Worn, Torn & Distressed!!!
For my card, I started with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from yesterday, SSSC73!!!
I started by cutting and embossing a piece of Neenah Solar Crest White with Circle Nestabilities. I then created a frame for it using post it notes and Circle Nestabilities. I attached the frame and stamped my image. I did it this way so that I had a clean white border on my panel.
For my card, I used the GORGEOUS new set, By the Sea, from There She Goes! This set is SO beautiful and it includes 37 stamps!!!
I colored the entire image with Copic Markers and I added some Waterfall Stickles to the water and Rock Candy Stickles to the sand. I then stamped the sentiment, "The voice of the sea speaks to the soul", also from By The Sea, onto my focal panel.
For the colors on my card, I wanted to go soft and serene, just like the ocean, so I used Kraft, Suede Brown Medium and Iced Teal. I ran all the panels through the Cuttlebug with the Stars Embossing Folder as I think these stars look like nautical stars. I distressed each panel, sponged each panel and then sewed each panel on my sewing machine.
I kept the embellishments simple, opting for three Vintage Brads and some Natural Rope Twine. I knotted the twine for a more "ocean" feeling.
