Stampin' Royalty Challenge #29

Wow did I have a lot of fun making this card. It's for the theme challenge over at Stampin' Royalty. This week the challenge is 'Splish Splash'. The Stampin' Goddesses have really outdone themselves this week with their samples. Please hop over to Jody's blog to see what she's done this week. You should link to all the other Goddess' blogs (kind of like a blog hop).

I saw this week's challenge and was thrilled because I have been thinking of doing this type of card with the scallop border punch. In the end, though, I decided to use the Scallop Square die for the Big Shot because it allowed me to place the white layer on the top and emphasize the negative image (wave shape) of the scallop edge. I layered the blues from darkest to lightest and offset the scallops to give more interest. I used a mask to sponge the sky and make clouds. Click here for a mini tutorial on how to do this.

The sentiment was made in Word and then cut out with the Modern Label Punch. Then I mounted it on turquoise cardstock and carefully cut it out with craft scissors. The whales come from the Fox & Friends stamp set. They were cut out and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals for more interest. The entire card was mounted on Melon Mambo cardstock.

The Fun Stuff:
1. Ink – Bashful Blue, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler (tiny hearts)
2. Paper – Cardstock – Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Melon Mambo
3. Stamps – Fox & Friends
4. Accessories – Scallop Square die for Big Shot, Modern Label punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
