Get Back on Your Feet - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #420

For this week's challenge,  Try Stampin' on Tuesday is partnering up with Double Trouble. a crafting challenge blog run by 2 retired ladies, and not affiliated with any company.

The challenge is to partner the sketch challenge with Try Stampin on Tuesday with "Thing 1" with Double Trouble, using he guidelines below for brownie points and when finished, link project on both blogs.
THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "Help us stir up some trouble with a 3-2-1 Recipe that can be used for any occasion." 
     From: Our Kitchen at Double Trouble   
     Servings: Unlimited portions of Fun
     Ingredients:  3 - Colors 
                           2 - Design Papers  
                           1 - Sentiment or image (stamped or digital OK)
Directions: You may use more than the recipe ingredients stipulated, but you need to include at least the required minimum of each ingredient for
successful results. 

For my project, I decided to use this little turtle on its back.  Everytime I see it I get a smile on my face.

Here's my recipe :

On an Old Olive card base is added a Whisper White layer embossed with the Ruffle embossing folder.  To bring out the ruffles better, the embossed layer was lightly sponged with Balmy Blue ink using a finger dauber.  The ruffles reminded me of waves which goes along with the poor turtle being knocked off its feet.

Two different patterns of Tropical Escape DSP are adhered to the top of this embossed layer.  - a striped horizontal one, and a vertical one notched at the lower edge. Both of these DSP are matted with Old Olive card stock.  Some Old Olive Linen Thread was wrapped around the notched DSP strip and tied into a bow.

The turtle on its back (from Back on Your Feet), was stamped with Black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock, coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen, then die cut with a layering circle die. The make the shell look a bit more realistic, i.e. wet and shiny, some 3D Crystal Lacquer was applied. It was matted with a slightly larger Old Olive scallop circle with the two of them adhered together using dimensionals.  This focal image is added to the card front overlapping the two DSP's.

The sentiment, also from "Back on Your Feet" was die cut with the Stitched Rectangle die, matted with Old Olive card sock and then added to the card front below the focal image.

Some clear "raindrop" elements were added randomly on the focal image and over the sentiment.

Ingredient summary:
.Colors:  Old Olive, Soft Suede, Balmy Blue
. DSP :  Tropical Escape 2 different patterns
. Sentiment:  A stamped sentiment from Back on Your Feet

Thank you so much for visiting us at Double Trouble from Try Stampin' on glad you entered our challenge too. I'm looking at this as a "Nautical something" as well since I'm looking through the porthole at your adorable turtle, waves and bubbles and like how you used the crystal lacquer for his shell. Adorable and fun card. Hope you follow us and come back Monday to see what Thing 1,2 and 3 have up their sleeve for a another team up and fun challenge.
