Global Design Project #275 & CAS(E) this Sketch #405

Hey Everyone

On a 37degree celsius day what else is there to do but sit in my air conditioned craft room? Actually, I’d use any excuse to sit in there….

I’ve combined my card today for two challenges – the theme challenge at Global Design Project and the final ever sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge. Here are their pics:

The card I’ve created has been created for a man, but this could work for a female also. The images I’ve added to my card are from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set. You can probably tell how much I love this set as I’ve used it more than once….

The large shell was stamped with Black Memento Ink. I took my Seaside Spray Blends and the Light Night of Navy Blend to give the shell some colour. The round shell was coloured with the light and dark Crumb Cake Blends. The little starfish has been given a quick colour with the Soft Suede Blends.

I wanted to give the background some interest so I took the ink splatter stamp and some Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the splatters from the left side of the card to the bottom right of the card – making sure it went under the sentiment. The sentiment I’ve added is also from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set.

The designer series paper is a woodgrain piece from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper Pack. To finish off the card I added some Linen Thread and added a knot under the cluster of shells.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Narelle

  1. This card is gorgeous….but all your designs are. Love the layered elements especially the knot in the twine and bubbles across the background.

    1. This card is gorgeous….but all your designs are. Love the detailed elements especially the knot in the twine, bubbles across the background and the frayed edges on the wood piece.

  2. This is just perfect for a beach theme – between the rough edges of the paper, the twine, the splatter and the gorgeous shells – it’s beautiful!
