Today's card was inspired by the challenge at SSINK. It's a picture inspiration challenge, which means you make a card inspired by this pic:
I LOVE this picture, it's so fun and summery. It's the soft blue wood background that really draws me in. So, I had to recreate that on my card with some Pool Party card stock, the Hardwood background stamp and Pool Party stamp pad.
I stamped my crab from the You're Sublime stamp set on a watercolor paper tag. Then I stamped and cut out a second crab from printer paper and stuck that over my first crab. With the mask in place I was able to sponge on the Crumb Cake Ink for the sand and not get that ink on the crab. The top of the tag is sponged with Pool Party ink. After sponging I used my Aqua-Painter to color in the crab with Melon Mambo ink.
My embellishments started with some thick Melon Mambo Baker's Twine, which after adding it to the tag, I unwound to make finer strands of thread. I added a die cut flower, cut using the Botanical Builder dies. The center of the flower is one of my DIY Enamel Dots (see how to make them on this post). The larger dots, that I think look like sea glass, are also my DIY Enamel Dots! Made with iridescent Pony Beads! Again, you can see how to make them HERE.
This is a super fun challenge and we'd love to have you join us, find out how on today's post at SSINK and while you're there check out other creations inspired by this picture that my fellow designers made!
