Hello and Welcome! Since today is Tuesday it's, of course, time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Take a look at this awesome color combination!
Well as usual Pool Party took me straight to water.. lol So water took me to the lake, the lake took me to East Tennessee because my daughter lives there are she and her hubby love to go to the lake on the weekends. Stay with me here... East Tennessee took me to brown bears and of course Chocolate Chip makes an awesome bear! So what to do with the Calypso Coral.. I went to salmon with that. I know, crazy, right?? Here's my card!
For the sponging, I took a sheet of notebook paper and torn it to use as a guide to sponge my hills. You know there are a LOT of Hills in the Knoxville area, right?? I used Wild Wasabi ink for the hills, Pool Party for the water, and Sahara Sand on the bottom for the ground. My bear was stamped in Black onto Chocolate Chip Cardstock and cut out with the Bear Hugs thinlits dies. The fish were stamped in Archival Black and then painted with my aqua painters with Calypso Coral Ink. The fish were cut out with the fish die from Bear Hugs as well. I used a 1/8" hole punch to punch a hole through the mouth of the fish. I ran some silver cording through them and tied them off. So here's where I messed up.. I turned the card upside down on top of the grid paper that I had been sponging on and ended up smearing a little ink in the upper right corner and the lower left. Not to worry.. I remembered I had an awesome stitched sun die from MFT so that covered up that upper right smear perfectly. For the lower left.. well I made another fish and put it on a seperate line that I tied off through the bears paw. Any mistake is an opportunity to embellish, right?? I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink at the bottom and prayed it would end up straight.. It did! lol
Thanks sooo much for stopping by and checking out my SIP design team card. Hope you have a blessed day and have time to get inky!
