May AEI♥U Challenge
I thought I'd play along with this month's AEI♥U challenge at Avery Elle, which was to create a project using the following photo as inspiration:
I really loved the way the blues in the photo change from the top towards the bottom of the photo, so I decided to make a card, using Avery Elle's To The Point stamp set to stamp the background of my card. (I used PTI inks: Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, Hawaiian Shores & Aqua Mist.) I matted this on some PTI Enchanted Evening cardstock and added some stitching with my sewing machine. I layered a piece of cardstock over the background and stamped my sentiment, using the same stamp set. Because I also loved the nautical theme of the photo, I decided to cut out some oars (using PTI aqua mist cardstock & a Silhouette cut file) and the anchor (using PTI enchanted evening cardstock and a Studio Calico cut file), on my Silhouette. I ran these through my big shot with my PTI woodgrain impression plate before adhering them to my card.
Thanks for looking!
