Because their swimming instructors are both teenage boys, I wanted to make the cards more masculine.
This first one is for Sketch #3 and a modification of the colour combo for Week 1. I created my background using PTI cardstock (aqua mist, hawaiian shores, classic kraft.) I stamped the palm trees from WMS My Island in dark chocolate and added a PTI double-ended banner die cut, stamped with a sentiment from My Island (I had to check online to see what it meant, but it does mean thank you.) A couple of buttons finishes it off.
My next card uses the same stamp set, along with Sketch #1 (obviously a favourite of mine this week!) I layered the banner, cut using Melanie Bauer's technique from Day 3, over some Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper and added some MME enamel dots to finish it off.
And my third card uses Jennifer McGuire's vellum technique from Day 5, Sketch #1, the last colour combo from the Additional Colour Combo list and my new WMS Fancy Feather's set.
I stamped the feathers to create the background and layered a vellum banner over top (once again cut using Melanie Bauer's technique from Day 3).
I stamped the sentiment using A Muse Studio Slate ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I cut out a leftover feather (from Clearly Besotted's Fancy Feathers set) that I had heat embossed on vellum for this card and adhered it to my card. I added some stitching, a button and twine to finish it off.
Thanks for looking!
