It's another challenge from the Global Design Project! I have a fun card today made with the Sea of Textures Bundle. The challenge was a sketch challenge:
Here it is from another view:
And then the inside:
I used the colors featured in the DSP-Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide. I stamped directly onto the DSP for my background, getting the different color variation by 2nd and 3rd generation stamping. I stamped my greetings onto the Wood Textures DSP. Don't you love the "Thanks" font? Then I cut them out with framelits from the Stitched Labels Framelit Dies to make those fun signs that cute octopus is holding...he has grown on me! In fact, this whole stamp set has become one of my favorites! I think I am going to name the octopus, let me know in the comments below what you think a good name for him would be!
Card Base: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 4-1/4
DSP Layer: 4 x 5-1/4
Fresh Fig strip: 3-1/2 x 5/8
DSP strip: 3-1/4 x 1/2
Whisper White for octopus
Scraps of Wood Textures DSP for signs
Tips & Tricks:
- Stamp directly onto DSP for a fun look
- The "Thanks" came from the stamp that says "Thanks for reaching out." Use a sticky note to mask and only ink the word (s) you want in your greeting.
- Remember to remove the sticky note before stamping onto your project!
- Get more than one color from a single ink pad. It's called "Stamping Off" or "Generation Stamping". The first time you stamp after inking is the "first" generation, then stamp again without inking, that's the 2nd generation, stamp again, "third" generation, etc.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card, hope you were inspired to get in your craft room and get some inking done!
