Serendipity: On or In the Water Challenge

This week's challenge over at Serendipity Stamps is "On or In the Water"!  So, I took these Canadian geese over water (sorry, not "on" or "in") to create my card.  I started with the black embossed stamp image and sentiment and added some new Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper.  I colored the Kraft Resist paper up with Chipped Sapphire ink first. For the image I added a tiny bit of Copic color to the geese and cattails for interest.  Sanding the Chipped Sapphire cardstock gave it a distressed look without looking too sloppy.
  Finished size is 8 x 5.5 (it's BIG!)

Check out what the other SS design team members came up with:
Jenny AnyaKathie and Lynda....
  • Ink: SU! Basic Black Craft Ink, Ranger Chipped Sapphire
  • Paper: SU! Kraft, Tim Holtz Kraft Resist & Core'dinations paper, black cardstock
  • Other:  Clear embossing powder, Copics, Tim Holtz button, block sander, twine, Spellbinders Nesties Classic Squares & Rectangles

Hi Miriam,

What a lovely card! Beautiful shades of blue and wonderful stamps. I really like that DP you used too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment on my card. And thanks for catching that I didn't include the sentiment in my write up - it's a clear stamp from Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy the Cat's Designer Collection Flourishes and Frame set. I updated my post so others will know too.

Hugs,
Linda
