I told you it was fabulous, right? I will be using this one over and over! I used the sketch to design a card for my stamp clubs using one of my favorite sets from the Spring Catalog, By the Tide:
Oh how I love the coral and seahorse images! I've used some of my favorite colors here too: Summer Starfruit, Calypso Coral and Pool Party. Such great beach colors together! What am I going to do when Pool Party retires in June?? I started with a Crumb Cake base and added a layer of Pool Party embossed with the Fancy Fan folder. I sponged some Pool Party ink all over the embossing to really make it pop. Love how the fancy fan texture looks like waves.The circle of Whisper White was cut with the 3" circle die onto which I collage stamped the coral, seahorse and script images and scattered some pearls in the coral. I used two strips of designer paper for the vertical element of the sketch, notching the ends and giving them a slight curl for extra movement. Can you hear them blowing in the warm ocean breeze? Well, probably many of you are under piles of snow right now so you'll just have to imagine the lovely breeze! :-)
I am really loving this sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set Vintage Verses--it's so pretty! And, of course, I can't get enough of that sweet little seahorse either! He was the perfect finishing touch to the inside of my card.
I just know the rest of my friends on the Design Team will have some amazing projects for you this week. Be sure to pop over and give them some love! Then pop over to the Paper Players to join us before the challenge closes on Friday, March 1st at Noon (PST). I can't wait to see what you can make with Jaydee's sketch!
