I’m participating in this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, which is a sketch to inspire a card layout…something I totally appreciate, when I start a new project. I also chose to use a super cute stamp set from Stampin’ Up…’We’ll Walrus Be Friends’ – one that I’ve been dying to play with since I picked it up because of the cute walruses.
Drum roll for the result please….
I used a mixture of Stampin’ Up tools and techniques to make this card!
The card is made with a Whisper White base. The larger matted white background was created using the High Seas 3D embossing folder, matted on Coastal Cabana card stock.
The smaller background was created with 3 ink colours: Pacific Point, Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana, using a watercolouring spritzer technique. Then I layered on Silver Metallic ink splatters for extra shimmer (because who doesn’t like shimmer?!) I just love how the colours in the background all came together to create a water look for the cute (sleeping?) walrus!
The walrus and sentiment were stamped from ‘We’ll Walrus Be Friends’ set and coloured using Blends markers. I added a Poppy Red stitched heart from the Stitched Label dies. To tie it all together and add some bling, I added a few Basic Rhinestones and a white twine ribbon.
