Papercraft Star 99: Aqua

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

This week, it's my turn, over at Papercraft Star, to showcase those fabulous images from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay; and I've gathered a collection of them to create a seafaring, Father's Day creation.
The sentiment panel for this card was completely created at the computer, beginning with the "Diary" base from 045 Blank Backgrounds.
The dates were already right as I wanted them, but the days of the week were a little off.  So, I blocked out aqua rectangles and added my own text.
I then created a transparency from two of the vintage, aqua, ship images in 166 Tall Ship Squares and pieced them right over each diary entry.
I did the same with the vintage script from 141 Text Writing Background Squares, placing one over each ship.
Finally, I created one, final, text box to type in my own "Happy Father's Day!" sentiment before printing on Whisper White cardstock.
It was then ink distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, before I embellished its top right corner with a "FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION" kraft tag, which I secured with a simple, paper clip; a chipboard button, laced with hemp twine; a stamped, in Jet Black ink, starfish, which I colored in with Pool Party ink and a blender pen; and a trio of pearls.
After stamping the vintage notepad image, in Basic Black ink, on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, I anchored the printed piece to it with a length of aqua, woodgrain, Washi tape.  I then layered an aqua, striped tab, which was stamped, in Basic Black ink, with "With Love", over the tape and doubly secured the entire piece, near the diary sheet's page number, to the Pool Party, cardstock, card base, with a couple of staples.
Now, it's your turn; and here's a fabulous, inspiration board, for Challenge #99, to help get you started!
