Hello and Happy Saturday!
I made this card last night for the Mini Virtual Stamp Night...Summer Vacation!
The VSN challenge asked us to use water in our project. In addition to the VSN challenge, I pulled out a recent color challenge on SCS (I have missed quite a few) which calls for old olive, bermuda bay, and night of navy. I even almost did a featured stamper challenge. I say almost, because this stamper has not been formally featured, but I CASE'd her card found here.
My card base is confetti white. My panel features the challenge colors. I actually stamped the image, "Sail Away," on 3 pieces of card stock, using Versamark and embossing with white powder. I then cut each piece into 3 pieces. This way, I will actually be able to assemble 3 nearly identical cards. The thin strips were mounted onto a piece of white card stock, then trimmed to make sure it was even.
My bermuda bay card stock is the old textured variety; I don't have any smooth CS in that color. That made embossing tough...but hey, it's not too bad. VSN nights, you want to finish quickly in the right time frame! I added this wide striped ribbon and a large button with twine for more detail. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out with the word window.
I think this card would work for a man or a woman...so it is nice to have 3 of them. For the moment; lots of cards to mail on Monday!
Thanks for stopping by again.
