Here are 2 cards that I made for Wednesday's sketch challenge found on Splitcoast Stampers . I have give a link to the challenge underneath the picture of my cards. I love this sketch and will use it alot in the futre. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=368396
The Night of Navy card is pretty simple--my trio of panels measures 1 1/16 x 4 and the red piece was cut after the trio was glued in place. I sponges the edges of each trio pieace before I glued them. My shell panel was cute to size of the shell, sponged and then layered. I finished it off with a knotted piece of hemp.
The Creamy Carmel card was made using the same dimensions for the imaged trio panels but instead of a large layer for all three pieces I layered each one individually. I like this look better but it makes for a heavier card. On my made panel I included a "net" made out of Stampin Up!'s mesh. I love the way it turned out--looks like I caught some shells in my net!! The shells were stamped with Choc. Chip onto Baja Breeze paper and then cut out. This card I finished off with a ribbon slide and some Creamy Carmel ginham ribbon.
I guess you could say I am wishing I was at the beach right now. I am hoping that before the summer is over we can take a trip to the beach even if it just for the day.
