Hi again! Wow two posts in one day! I just posted my card this morning for the PPA challenge ... then I was soooooo excited to see a new challenge at the Paper Players ; another color challenge that fits the birthday card, I made for my brother's birthday tomorrow, perfectly! Here are the colors.
I actually had this card done a fewweeks ago but went back and added the twine and tags when I got the inspiration from Ann Schach's card a few posts back here. She is also my spritzer hero too. I 'finally' got the hang of that spritzer after I called SU and got mine replaced. Now I don't have to feel like a spritzer stumper!
I started with marina mist card stock for the base and stamped the compus lightly on the top right corner, then built my card layers using the new "Nautical Expedition" DSP and new stamp set "The Open Sea"... LOVE this set!
I layered a few strips of the DSP to the front then I stamped the ship's log on basic white and spritzed and distressed it and curled the corner.
I also stamped the ship on another piece of basic white and die cut then distressed and spritzed this piece; I stamped the sentiment in cherry cobbler and then matted this piece with cherry cobbler die cut before attaching to the front with pop dots.
The finishing touch (thanks Ann) was to wrap some cherry cobbler baker's twine and add a few tiny tags with a piece of blue floss.
The inside is finished with touches of DSP and more of the Open Sea, then the sentiment was stamped in cherry cobbler.
One more stamp on the envelope... Done!
I REALLY like how it turned out... hope my brother does too!
