Welcome back to our Stamp Off challenge,
posted every other week!
We have many wonderful "beachy" stamp sets,
that enable us to unleash our creative efforts.
I didn't get overly fancy for this challenge. I picked the
High Tide photopolymer set on page 145 for several reasons;
the sentiments are wonderful, you can create lovely cards,
and I find it very peaceful to stamp with this set. The images
are beautiful and easy to combine, while you imagine
yourself laying on a beach, looking up at a lighthouse.
In this example, I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede,
Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide inks. To add some technique,
I ran the completed/stamped card through the Big Shot
Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (p 223) twice,
once in each direction. I feel that this makes the card
look like it was painted on canvas. Below is a similar card,
that was not run through the Subtle Texture Impressions
Embossing Folder, for comparison.
more interest to the "painting". I did not add a sentiment
to the front of the first card, because I wasn't sure how it would
look after being embossed.
Thank you so much for stopping by this week.
more beachy goodness!
