Phew...Finished in the nick of time! Oh drats, no I didn't. Missed out on the deadline by an hour or so but oh well, I had fun anyway!
I've been away at the VABeach Yummy and Delicious Rubber Stamping event and had not had a chance to work on my card for this CAS159 challenge, so when I got home yesterday, I started thinking... It'll be a fun time to create something watery and dreamy with our yummy reinkers. A little Yummy...and Delicious. hee hee...
I decided to play around with my reinkers and made some fun "ocean-like" backgrounds. The technique went VERY quickly and I was able to create several beautiful backgrounds to use on future cards. I think my technique worked very well with the blue/teal tones of reinker and I can't wait to share this fun technique with some friends at my next Make-It event...and possibly on my next Periscope adventure.
For the first card, I splattered some Silver Silk onto the background to give it some added dimension. After that, I applied a collage of graph paper and natural twine then added some pearls and the little shell from ...colored with Banana Cream and Hazelnut Blend reinkers. The tiny "faith" sentiment comes from one of my new favorite sentiment sets called Text Happy. This is a set that includes 36 perfectly understated sentiments. This stamped panel was mounted on foam squares and placed onto an A2 Whip Cream card base with a top fold.
This close-up shows the collage in detail but does not quite capture the gloss finish (Journey Glaze) on the shell from the Wish in a Bottle set. It's a perfect element, I think! You might also see a few glimmers of sparkle dust...Not too much sparkle but just enough to help mimic some shimmer on the water.
Cool Pool, Pool Play, Beach Breeze and Denim Days re-inkers to create this fun ocean-like background.
My second card was even more simple. I wanted to have almost complete focus on the beautiful water...Love how some areas leave the impression of white caps. Perfect, simple and quick.
Black licorice cardstock then foam squares were added before adhering the whole panel to an Oatmeal Cookie card base with a top fold.
Black Licorice ink directly on the background so the background focus would speak for itself. Just a little Black twine and some sparkly pearls and voila...it's done!
