Hello everyone and a Happy New year to you. Hope 2018 is a good one.
The Chocolate Baroque DT team have been showing their samples , on the blog,
from the mermaid and sea sets of stamps. These were shown on Hochanda, just before Christmas.
So I have one of my card samples, that I did for the show, to show you today.
One of my favourites was this.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a good photo of it before sending.
I was going to do it as a box card with a curved front, then miscalculated the sizing when I trimmed it up! So I just had it as an opening card with a curved front. Difficult to see in the photo but I liked the effect when it was standing. Does need to go in a box rather than an envelope though.
I started with a Distress ink background in Weathered wood, Mustard seed and Faded jeans.
Then I over-stamped the different elements to make the scene and added a little more yellow and orange around the sun.
If you make the base picture a few centimetres wider, you can stick both side edges down on the front panel, to make a curve faced, box type card.
Hope this makes sense!!
Stamps used: Seashore Scenes
Distress inks: Weathered wood, Mustard seed, Faded jeans, Orange marmalade.
Thank you for visiting and see you soon.
