Hey, there, peeps! It’s time for another Crazy 4 Challenges card. This week is sketch week and Frances has another great one for us.
The base of this card is Sweet Tooth card stock. Next I trimmed down a piece of Sno Cone card stock and stenciled it with Berrylicious ink and Waves Stencil. For the left hand vertical element, I used MPD Fishnet Stencil and added some embossing paste. I love how embossing paste adds dimension without adding another layer with the accompanying bulk.
Next I added a strip of Kraft card stock stamped with Versamark and the anchors from Go Overboard and popped that up on foam. With cotton yarn, I tied on a sailor’s knot, then added the port hole from Let’s Get Nautical Die-namics, cut from metallic silver card stock, distressed with Kraft ink, and popped up on foam. The sentiment, also from Go Overboard, was stamped on a Sentiment Strips Die-namics die cut with Steel Gray ink, trimmed, and also popped up on foam. I finished it off with some clear gems, like bubbles floating to the top ;-)
Another sentiment from Go Overboard was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our July Guest Designer, Kelly Booth!
