Recently I participated in a color challenge that was a Design Team Pick, so when I was ready to make this sketch challenge card I decided to use the scraps from that challenge for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #107. The other card can be viewed here.
Using a white card base, gray cardstock was adhered to the base and then white cardstock. On top of that a piece of DSP depicting water was adhered. From slate cardstock, four rectangles were cut and then DSP depicting stones and another depicting a tartan design were adhered. These four rectangles were attached to the card after backing them with craft foam to pop them up.
Next, the anchor was stamped and sponged and cut with a die. The hemp was laced around the anchor image through pierced holes. The image was then backed with gray cardstock and fussy cut to create a slender frame. The image was attached to craft foam and then adhered to the card.
Finally, the sentiment was computer generated, adhered to a banner cut from the DSP and popped up when adhered. The inside of the card was decorated along the bottom edge with a piece of gray cardstock and the stone DSP.
