Calypso Cabana

I finally used the right technique for the Color Block method! I was not spritzing with water before and it always turned out all streaky, I could never figure out why. I have been a stamper for a long time now, but this old dog still has some new tricks to learn, I tell you!

This card fits right in with the Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home, challenging us to make cards featuring water!

I was just playing around with this technique, then decided I needed to make my practice stamping into a card. A little texture and some sponging give this card more depth. I feel like this card could be for a woman or a man, the colors are just gender-neutral enough to pull it off.
  • Stamps: By the Tide, Bring on the Cake
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Smokey Slate
  • Paper: Calypso Coral, Smokey Slate, Coastal Cabana, Naturals White
  • Other: Big Shot with Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Acrylic Block, Stampin' Spritzer with water, Corner Rounder and 1" Square punches, Signo white gel pen, sponge
No embellishments on this card, huh. How did I manage that?! I wish I had the Smokey Slate Chevron ribbon already, I think I could have gotten that in here somehow :)

Don't forget to come back on Monday, June 10, 2013 for the New Colors Blog Hop!

Ah ha! Spritz it with WATER! Thanks for the tip!
Good idea to use the mosaic ef in the background. Now that I see it like this it sorta reminds me of waves. Cool!
