Celebrating By The Sea

Hello Everyone and welcome to the JustRite Stampers Blog Hop!!!  Today we are celebrating the release of five beautiful new sets available from JustRite this month - Applique, Hope, Kaleidoscope, Let's Celebrate and By the Sea.  I've chosen By the Sea to showcase today - it has four borders and centers that fit the large oval stamper.  I've gone with a very nautical theme using navy, red, ivory and a touch of kraft!

I started with a base of Not Quite Navy and layered with Kraft and red bazzill.  The red layer I embossed with Divine Swirl across the top (for waves :) ) and the Dotted Wave Border Punch across the bottom.  Across the bottom of this layer I added some My Mind's Eye Lush DSP that I sponged with a little Antique Linen ink.  Across the join I attached some light brown grosgrain ribbon.  I stamped the center and border from By the Sea in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured it with Copics (E31, E35, E37, R22, R27, YR32, Y21, C1) and added a little sparkle to the sea with the atyou Spica Clear Pen.  I then cut it out with Large Oval Nestabilities and sponged it with a little Antique Linen ink and then matted it with some Navy cut with the Label 8 Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape.  I created the sentiment using the Times New Roman Lowercase Font and cut a notched tag, sponged with more Antique Linen ink and added a navy button and some natural twine and then finished by adding a couple of silver brads to the top corner.

Stamps - By the Sea, Times New Roman Lowercase Font (JustRite)
Paper - Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Red Bazzill, X-press It Blending Card, MME Lush DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Not Quite Navy, Tim Holtz Antique Linen
Accessories - Label 8 and Large Oval Nestabilities, Copics, Clear Spica Pen, Divine Swirl EF, EK Success Dotted Wave Border Punch, Light Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Navy Blue Button, Natural Twine, Silver Brads, Foam Tape.
