Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well.
I have a card today using stamps by Impression Obsession. This sailboat collage stamp has been sitting in a drawer uninked for too long. I was hoping to enter this design in an upcoming IO challenge but one of the rules is that you must use IO Stamps and Dies. I've used a non-IO flourish die so unfortunately it doesn't qualify but I think this would work well as a 'man card'.
However I'm joining into the Rhedd and Rosie Challenge- as the theme is "Here comes Summer". Well summer is certainly here, it's beautiful this morning, the humidity left but I'm sure it will be back soon. Sailing would be a wonderful activity!
Impression Obsession stamps: Cover a Card CC014 Fluff, H13022 Sail Collage and B3552 just a note.
I stamped the 'fluff' CAC background with Black Soot Distress Ink over a piece of designer paper that has a slight pattern to it. It looks like a 'swirl' to me and mimics water.
I stamped and embossed the main image with black twice. I painted with Tombow markers and cut out the outer frame and decoupaged over the main image. I embossed the nautical decoration a 3rd time and added to the side. I added glitter to the ripples in the water.
I used Crealie Die CL CS02 for the black flourish that matches the background swirls.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great summer day!
