HIgh Tide for Can You Case It?


I have been playing with my High Tide Stamp Set today.  This fantastic set is found in the Occasions Catalog.  I looked for a challenge to play and decided on this week's Can You Case It Challenge.  The challenge is a color one.

Here's my card:

And here's the challenge colors from Can You Case it?

Here are the details:

  • I didn't have any silver ink so I chose Smoky Slate for the bottom of my image.  I masked the top parts of the card and sponged in color.  I went over the sponging with the "sand" stamp from the High Tide Stamp Set.
  • For the center of the card, I sponged Soft Sky.  For more dimension, I stamped over it with the "water" stamp in Marina Mist.
  • The top portion of the card was sponged with Wisteria Wonder.
  • The Lighthouse and the birds are stamped in Basic Gray. I fussy cut the lighthouse and adhered it with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment was stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.
This card takes me to my favorite happy place even in January!

Happy stampin'
