Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge. Week number two of Challenge #129 is continuing on with this slimline sketch challenge designed to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Here is the slimline card I created inspired by the sketch:
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2." Slimline cards are designed to fit into a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. Newton's Nook is now selling Slimline Envelopes in a variety of colors designed to fit your slimline cards! The base of this card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I created a frame also from white cardstock using the Slimline Portholes Die. I ink blended the background in Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink. I layered the Sunscape Stencil over the yellow sky (to the left) and ink blended Honey Oxide ink to create a sun scene. I die cut the waves from Bermuda Bay cardstock and blue glitter paper using the Shark Bites Die set. Using the Shark Bites stamp set, I stamped three of the sharks in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. I colored the sharks using Copic markers and then I die cut them using the coordinating Shark Bites dies. I stamped the waves and schools of fish in Bermuda Bay ink on the die cut wave paper. I adhered the three sharks to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
