I am finally getting around to posting this card after a busy week. There are two challenges I am entering with this card. One is the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Stencil It and the other is the Mod Squad In the Ocean or On the Sea Challenge. So this is what I have come up with.
For the Simon Says Stamp Blog challenge you have to use a stencil. I don't have any background stencils so I had to improvise. I took the netting out of the back of a bag of potatoes and used that as a stencil! I used some Versa Magic Sea Breeze chalk ink and inked through the stencil right on the cardstock. had to go over some spots a few times to get it all covered. The big stamp is from Inkadinkado and I used Stampin' Up Cajun Craze ink. The small shell stamp is one I picked up second hand and it doesn't have a brand on it. I also stamped it with the Cajun Craze ink. I used an EB tools 1 1/2" circle punch to cut it out. The sentiment is from Harmonie and I stamped that with the Sea Breeze ink.
I matted the sentiment and the large shell image with some blue cardstock. I didn't have another circle punch
to cut out a mat for the small shell image so I used some Spectrum Noir markers to colour the edge. I used IB2 first and it didn't look quite right so I added some BT2. I also didn't have any matching ribbon so I coloured some white ribbon with TB2 and BT2. It's not perfect but I don't have all of the markers yet and I think it is close enough.
I adhered everything together and popped up the sentiment and the small image.
