One Layer By The Tide

July 31, 2013

I found a great tutorial by Amy Celona for a Stationary Box and pictured with the box was a card.  Amy’s card and box were created using Crumb Cake card, Crumb Cake ink and Soft Suede ink.  I decided to recreate the card using shades of blue.015

I inked my Clear Mount Block E using Pool Party ink and lightly spritzed it with water before stamping onto Naturals Ivory card.  I stamped the seaweed image from the By The Tide stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using Island Indigo ink.  The fish from the same stamp set is stamped using Island Indigo ink onto the top right hand corner.  I inked the word image, also from the By The Tide stamp set  using island indigo ink and dabbed a little of the ink off with a clean tissue before stamping onto the card front.  016The seahorse and shell images from the By The Tide stamp set were also onto scrap Naturals Ivory card using Island Indigo ink and cut them out.  I used my bone fold to add a little curve to the seahorse and the shell before attaching them to the card front using a dimensional under the curve.  I used a button I created using the Simply Pressed Clay and the Buttons Simply Pressed Clay Molds.   Before the button completely air dried I used a little Crumb Cake re-inker and my Aqua Brush to add some colour.  I dyed a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine using Island Indigo ink.  Once the button and the twine was dry, I tied the twine through the button and attached it to the card front using Crystal Effects.017

Inside the card I stamped the seaweed image using Pool Party ink before stamping the fish over the top with Island Indigo ink.  The greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set is also stamped using Island Indigo ink.

What a fun card to make.  I think we will have to do this one at my class at Beachmere in the near future.

Bye for now, Kris.
