Hi everyone!! This post is a quick reminder for our current TIME OUT challenge. Our theme for this one is a phrase:
'GIVE THANKS WITH A GRATEFUL HEART'
You can be inspired by the whole phrase, one word or the idea behind the words....its totally up to you!!
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Karren J of Stamping Stuff. Karren lives in New Zealand like me, so its wonderful to have someone from our little country, (and with so much talent!) joining us for this challenge!!
For my card I decided to play around with water colours and a stamp set I haven't used enough of:
I grabbed my Gansai Tambi paints and a wide paintbrush and went to town colouring the background. I used a piece of water colour CS the same size as my card front and painted with three shades of blue. The panel was die-cut in the middle using a rectangle die and the left over frame was adhered to the card front.
The whale was stamped on some white CS and fussy cut. I die-cut another rectangle using white CS and stamped the wave using a Hero Arts 'Ombre' ink pad in Pool to Navy. The sentiment was stamped in black and I stamped the blue water splash for the whales blowhole. The rectangle was then popped up on foam tape on the card. The whale was put on foam tape as well for some dimension and I added some aqua and clear sequins for a bit of shine.
All of the stamps used are from Mama Elephant 'Whale Wishes'. The sequins and rectangle die are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I'm going to link this to the Inkspirational Challenge #120 where their theme is:
