Hello and welcome to my blog post for Colour INKspiration #86!
Some beautiful colours to play with for this challenge. My thoughts turned instantly to the sea and I chose the very sweet Whale Done stamp set for this challenge. The challenge photo was inspirational and I recreated the water droplets using the beautiful Holiday Rhinestones in Coastal Cabana.
Here is my creation for this challenge.
- Start with a Pacific Point card base measuring 21cm x 14.8cm.
- Cut another piece of Pacific Point card stock to measure 10cm x 13.5cm and use the large stitched rectangle die to create the stitched Pacific Point matt layer. Glue this to the card base.
- Cut the Whale of a time DSP to measure 11cm x 7.5cm and glue this on the top of the matt layer.
- Stamp the Whale in Coastal Cabana ink onto a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock and punch out with the Whale Builder punch.
- Stamp two of the large seaweed and one of the smaller seaweed in Shaded Spruce ink on Shaded Spruce card stock. Fussy cut these three images out with your paper snips.
- Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink on a 1.9cm x 7.5cm piece of Whisper White card stock. Punch the left end of the sentiment strip with the Banners Pick a Punch.
- Pop the sentiment layer up with Dimensionals on the bottom right of DSP layer.
- Arrange the three seaweed pieces on the bottom right of DSP under where you are going to place the Whale.
- Pop the Whale image up on Dimensionals and place it over the top of the seaweed and the sentiment layer.
- Use three of the Coastal Cabana Rhinestones to create some little bubbles from the front of the whale.
