Beware Pirates!

Last weekend, SCS had Virtual Stamp Night. During VSN, they present a challenge every hour. This month, the theme was food. I made this card for a challenge where you had to follow a recipe. The recipe I chose was for a Blue Bikini martini. The colors were Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue and Cameo Coral. The accessories I chose (from a list) were acetate and brads. The garnish was rhinestones (in my brads).
I started by cutting a piece of window sheet and a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock down to the size of my stamp block. I stamped the ship onto the window sheet with White StazOn. To make my water scene, I punched a 3/4" circle into a Post-It and used that to sponge Cameo Coral craft ink for the sun. Then I heatset that to get the true ink color. Next I sponged Brilliant Blue ink all along the bottom and just around the other edges. I used Ice Circle rhinestone brads to attach the window sheet to the backdrop. The card base is Cameo Coral with Sanded stamped in Cameo Coral ink. I stamped the sentiment in turquoise ink and punched it out with the modern label punch. I backed that up with a designer label in Brilliant Blue.
Happy stamping!
