This was the swap I did for our Team Meeting last month. I’m loving the Lilypad Lake Bundle, stamp set with matching Framelits. This really was an easy card to put together once you get the Brusho Circles done. Not that they are hard to do, just takes time waiting for them to dry.
The base of this card is Night of Navy, then the Tranquil Tide layer is embossed with the Pinewood Plank (page 223) Embossing Folder and adhered to the base.
I started out with a full piece of Watercolor Paper. Sprinkled Prussian Blue and Moss Green Brusho all over the Watercolor Paper. Then used Spray Starch instead of water, and placed a crumpled up piece of Saran Wrap over the top, let it dry and die cut my Layering Circles for the sail boats to float in. It does take a while to dry, but it makes the most interesting patterns on your paper. Make sure you tape down your Watercolor Paper with Washi Tape or some kind of removable tape onto a piece of chip board, I used the backing in one of our Designer Series packs. And it does make a bit of a mess, but so worth it. Isn’t it striking?
Next you will want to die cut your “frame”, using one Stitched Shape Circle and one a bit smaller from the Layering Circles in Night of Navy cardstock. I glued the frame onto the Brusho circle. Now its time to stamp the sail boats with Memento Black Ink and color them with Stampin’ Blends. Its easier to color them BEFORE you die cut them. I added the sail boats with Dimensionals, and added the Black Rhinestones from the Faceted Dots (page 197 of the new catalog).
The sentiment comes in the Lilypad Lake stamp set. I added a double Linen Thread Bow with a Glue Dot.You can see the “water” better in this photo. I added some Wink of Stella to the sail boats. The circle is attached with Dimensionals.
