Freshly Made sketch 277
I had a chance to create a card using the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches recently. Unfortunately I forgot to post in time so missed the cut off for the challenge. However, using the sketch gave me an opportunity to try out a new stamp set – High Tide. I have had this set for a while but this is my first creation.
I stamped the first image for the lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set onto Whisper White card using Sahara Sand ink and stamped the second image over the top using Soft Suede ink. I stamped the sand image using Crushed Curry ink and added the water image using Island Indigo ink. I stamped the grass image using Always Artichoke ink and added the birds using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I attached the stamped panel to scored and folded Soft Suede card. I stamped the greeting from the Build a Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink. I punched one end using the Triple Banner Punch. I attached the greeting to a banner created using Soft Suede card before attaching to the card front.
To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the sand image using Crushed Curry ink and stamped the sea bird image over the top using Soft Suede ink. You have to play a little with the sand image, because it has a cut out space designed to fit around the bottom of the lighthouse, but by stamping one end first and flipping the stamp upside down, I managed to fill across the width of the card.
I can see that I am going to have to get this stamp set out a bit more and experiment. The great thing is that you can create your scene however you wish – use all the stamps for a detailed scene or pick and choose to create a completely different look.
What do you think? Do you love this stamp set too.
