today I want to share with you my card for the bastel-traum.ch Challenge – the new theme is «Water».
In Germany, yesterday's Ascension day is also Father's Day and this is the card I made for my lovely daddy.
At first, I created this kind of watery background with Distress Inks («Tumbled Glass», «Salty Ocean» and «Peacock Feathers») and lots of water. I also added some random splatters by flipping my paint brush. After everything was completely dry, I stamped the wave image from the Studio Calico «Message in a Bottle» stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed it with aqua embossing powder. Then I carefully cut along the top of the wave with my craft knife to create a slit. I white embossed the bottle on vellum and fussy cut it right against the edge. I stamped the sentiment and heart from the Simon Says Stamp «Sending happy thoughts» stamp set and heat embossed it in «Cherry Cobbler» (Stampin' Up!) and «Liquid Platinum» (Ranger). The cork was made out of wood veneer paper. I tucked the bottle in the slit at an angle so it looks like it peeks out of the waves. To finish my card, I adhered some matching Doodlebug pearls and a strip of My Mind's Eye washi tape to create a border.
I enter my card to the SSS Flickr Challenge #19 – Create your own background.
Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow :o)
