This week the What Will You Stamp (WWYS) team is showcasing the versatile Waterfront Stamp Set. It can be found on page 149 of the Annual Catalogue, #146386 $22.00.
I think this is one of my favourite cards that I have created with this stamp set, could it be because I added some Frost White Shimmer Paint (Holiday Catalogue, page38 #147046 $11.00) to my Smoky Slate (pg 184 Annual catalogue #131159 $5.00) and Balmy Blue (pg 186 annual catalogue #147168 $5.00) ink refills for the water and sky, giving it that pretty subtle shimmer that I love. I just can’t seem to help myself when it comes to the new Shimmer Paint, I want to use it with everything!!!
To create my card, I pulled out my Shimmery White card stock, my go to when I want to watercolour. I started my scene with the spruce trees and some Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamping them in full strength, then a second time for a softer look of trees in the background.
I then moved on to the ground, I used the Sahara Sand Classic Stampin’ Pad for this, again stamping a second time to give lighter and darker areas for the ground. Up next was the water, stamping off a couple times so that the colour was very subtle, I then used my Aqua Painter to blend the colour even more. My mountains are Crumb Cake.
I then took my blended Shimmer Paint (a little Smoky Slate and Balmy Blue ink refills combined to make the sky a grey blue colour. I used my Aqua Painter to get in close to the trees.
I stamped the sentiment on the top left corner of my scene, making the Tuxedo Black ink not quite as black and vibrant (not really sure if I like this or not????), and then the other sentiment is stamped in the bottom right corner of the Mossy Meadow card stock.
To create the window in the Mossy Meadow card stock, I took my ruler and a pencil to figure out how large I wanted the window to be. I then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the pencil drawn window out so it would perfectly frame my scene. I glued these two pieces together, then tied some Linen Thread around it. I then used my Foam Adhesive Strips to the back to pop the entire thing up off my card base.
All of the products I used to create this pretty card can be purchased in my Online Store xo
