This card was inspired by a card I saw on online by Theresa Momber.
I began with a 5 ½” x 4 ¼” rectangle from Gina K. Designs 80# Ivory Cardstock. To create the sky and water I used full adhesive Post-its. I created the sky first by ink blending Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. To create the clouds I cut some clouds out of another Post-it and used the negative space to ink blend some Vintage Photo into the lighter areas of the sky. I then moved the post-its to cover the sky and ink blended the horizon/water with Fossilized Amber, Brushed Corduroy, and Peanut Brittle. The darker areas on the outside of the rectangle are land and the lighter area in the center represents a cove for boats to sail into.
Once the ink blending was done it was time to begin stamping. I used the pine trees from Gina K. Designs Blessed is the Season and stamped them with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I did some second generation stamping for trees in the background. Next I stamped the grass and sailboat from Gina K. Designs By the Sea with the same ink, then using By the Sea II I stamped the birds in the sky.
To assemble the card I die cut the focal image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and then cut a slightly larger rectangle from Gina K. Designs 120# Chocolate Brown Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered to two together with Tombo Mono Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
The sentiment is from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely and was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink in the lower right of the panel. A rectangle of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut smaller than the brown rectangle and adhered to the back for added dimension. A cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock and the focal image was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
