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.
