A new week, a new list of challenge cards to work on. This week I am starting the week off over at Just Add Ink for their Sketch Challenge # 578.
The sun has been hiding behind the clouds all morning. I decided to give my self a beachy themed card to brighten up the morning. So I pulled out my Timeless Tropical stamp set and got to work with my sponge daubers and blending brushes.
The Stitched so Sweet rectangle die is colored with the blending brushes using a combo of Balmy Blue, Just Jade, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake. I added just touch of Dark Soft Suede splatter with my Stampin’ Blend for a sand effect.
For the Palm Trees I used my sponge daubers and added Old Olive ink with touches of Granny Apple Green to the palm frowns and then Cinnamon Cider to the trunk of the tree. I used the matching die to cut it out. For the sentiment I cut a stitched circle using the Pictures This dies and stamped the Thank You sentiment with Just Jade. Isn’t the font for the word Thank just fabulous, very swoopy!
I fished the card with a bit of Crum Cake Baker’s Twine! I just love the Baker’s Twine essentials pack, all the well used colors in one back and the value is great!
I hope you enjoy this card, be sure to leave a comment and let me know!
