Congrats - From Land to Sea Try Stampin on Tuesday #276

The hot spell has finally broken and it looks like there might be some rain (at last).  But looking forward to the long weekend, the weather is going to be perfect for my craft show at Stoney Lake.

The card for the sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday has a definite nautical feel.  I use the stamp set "From Land to Sea" and I feature the turtle.

  • The background of the art piece was created by sponging 3 colours on a piece of Whisper White paper. - Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist.  After cutting it to size, the edges were sponged with Night of Navy.
  • The image needed some sea grass, so I used the meadow grass from "In the Meadow" and stamped it in the lower left.
  • One turtle was coloured, cut out and set aside.  But because I like to use the rule of "3's" I stamped two other turtles in the background.  I wanted to make it look like they were in the distance, so I stamped off twice before stamping on the art piece.  Look carefully and you will see them.  Perhaps in the close up below they can be seen better.

    The single turtle was coloured with a blender pen and ink pads, cut out, the edges sponged, and then adhered to the art piece using tombo glue. 

    Versa mark was applied to the entire art piece and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

    It was matted with Old Olive cardstock, and this unit was attached to the card front using dimensionals.

    The card base is Dapper Denim, layered with Whisper White embossed with perfectly polka dot embossing folder.  On top of that is Marina Mist embossed with Gently Falling embossing folder.

    The sentiment is from "Happy Happenings".
