It has been a while since I have posted a card challenge. I have battled two colds since Christmas, and I am finally feeling better after two doctor visits, 2 rounds of antibiotics, and steriods. It is great to back to creating cards using my Fun Stampers Journey products. Since it is Mondy, I decided to check out the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. This week is a simple sketch that allows creative ideas to pop, pop, pop. Here is the sketch:
I decided to jump off in the deep end of the pool by cutting apart my words for the sentiment portion of this card. I just couldn’t resist. I chose FSJ Denim Days as my base cardstock and wave portion from FSJ Under The Sea Prints (PP-0041) 6 x 6 paper pack. I adhered the printed paper onto the Denim Days base. I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment. Since these stamps are deep etched red rubber, I had to work a bit to get a curve right amount of curve in each strip of words. I dusted the Denim Days with my embossing buddy to eliminate any static cling and I stamped the workd using Versamark ink. I sprinkled some FSJ white embossing powder onto the sentiment and heated with my FSJ heat tool. The sentiment reads In the waves of change we find our (front) direction (inside).
I looked up on YouTube how to tie a sailors knot and chose one I thought would look good on this card and place it at the top. This was a super quick and simple card; great to give someone who needs encouragement.
Here is the completed card:
