My Hearts Pleasure


SIP Sketch Challenge #43

Good morning!  I hope you are enjoying this rainy spring day. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week our inspiration for you comes from a fun sketch

SIP Sketch Challenge #43

Here is what I created using this sketch

Stampin Up Traveler Birthday

I started with a Coastal Cabana card base and then a layer of Real Red. The next layer is a piece of Kraft Cardstock that I stamped with the Old World Map by Stampin Up (1998) in Stazon black ink. For my main image I used a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the ship from the set Traverlers directly on the paper and then again on a piece of acetate, which I used to transfer the reflection image. I watercolored the water scene using Coastal Cabana ink and a water brush.  I used my Real Red marker to accent the boat. To finish I cut flag banners from Coastal Cabana and Real Red Cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set Guy Greeetings and added some of my homemade enamel dots.

I am also entering my card into the challenge this week over at RetroRubber Challenge blog for their April showers challenge.  You can see the challenge here

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my card this week and feel inspired to play along with us for this fun Sketch Challenge.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂
