Whale Wishes

Hello there stamping friends,
Thought I'd pop in this lovely weekend to share a little card I created for the CYCI #122 challenge this week.  It's been a while since I've participated in a sketch challenge, but I loved the sketch and had some extra time to play, so I figured it was a good time to dive right in!

I chose to use a new stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey called Nautical Sketch.  This set can be found in our Spring Into Summer mini inspiration book/catalog.  I love the sketchy designs in this set and have found it to be a very versatile set.   All of the images are just perfect for masculine and feminine projects.  I prefer to have my cardfronts "sentiment-less" but to follow the sketch, I hunted for a sentiment that would work and not overpower the design.  I hope it works!  The sentiment is from the Little BIG Greetings set (Retiring soon!  On sale at 40%off now!).
As you can see, I also added some embossing using my favorite stencil called Starburst Lines. Modeling Paste helped give texture, and Denim Days/Buttercream inks helped to add color and define the dimensional texture a bit more.
I selected Denim Days, Oatmeal Cookie, Whip Cream cardstock and pulled in a bit of the coordinating Nautical Adventure Prints paper that coordinates perfectly with the set.  I colored the whale with a few Copic markers (C&W grays) then added some Liquitex Iridescent Bright Silver Ink over the top to give it some sheen.  To finish it off, I used a few scrap cuts of gold Vellum Designer Prints, a few twirls on Natural Journey Twine and a couple leaves diecut (from the kraft paper all our products are packed and shipped in) from the new steel rule die called Summer Bouquet.

ETA:  This card was selected as a "Design Team Pick"!  Thank you Chloe for "Liking" my card!  I LOVED the sketch!  :)

Chevron-a-ganza!

Having fun playing with the chevron background stamp....Added a few diecuts, some fun splattering and sparkles and poof...a fun little card.
Gold Silk and splashes are fun!
not sure about the pink on the underside of the mini bow but...I suppose I can add a pop of pink elsewhere to make it look "on purpose".  ;)
