Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Cheiron Brandon....congrats, Cheiron!!! It was extremely tough to choose a card to case since there were so many I loved! I chose this awesome card as inspiration to help me to create this birthday card for my niece's husband (would that make him my nephew-in-law?! lol!!) I began by cutting a piece of watercolor paper with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, then adhered two masks cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies (I use temporary Tombow snail adhesive since it rubs right off when you are finished with your masks.) I then sponged Coastal Cabana ink at the top over the masks and both Summer Sun and More Mustard at the bottom. The masks were removed and a little yellow was sponged over the cloud areas, then the panel was spritzed with water to mottle the inks a bit.. A sentiment from 'Hello Sunshine' was stamped in the corner plus the birds only from the fishing boat stamp in 'The Waves on the Sea' stamp set were stamped among the clouds. Instead of using a brown card base like Cheiron's card, I matted the panel in brown but used a Coastal Cabana card base. One cloud was cut out with the watercolor paper and popped up with foam tape.
Thanks for visiting today!
