Nautical Inspired Cards

You've really gotta get your hands on every. single. item. from the Hero Arts July release. They are the perfect summer addition to your stash!

These cards all started with me experimenting with the new Pebbles and Stone Stencil

I started with two A2 panels of watercolor cardstock. I placed the Pebbles and Stone Stencil on top of one panel and sprayed Black + Shimmer Metallic Spray over top. Without cleaning the stencil, I then flipped the still-inked stencil on top of the other watercolor panel. Now I have a cool negative and positive image of this great stencil.

I then lined up the stencil so the openings were showing and ink blended with Wet Cement.

With the stencil still inked from Wet Cement, I embossed a panel of Sand Cardstock by simply running the paper and stencil through my Spellbinder Embossing/Die Cutting Machine. It leaves a great imprint and embossed look!

The stamped images are also from a new July release - Nautical Messages. I don't have the coordinating die cuts, so I used my Brother Scan n' Cut to cut these images. They were colored with Polychromos Colored Pencils.

Both cards use the same diagonal design. The second card uses Granite Cardstock on the bottom, as it matched well with the Black + Shimmer spray.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll also enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp "Summer Fun" challenge.
