Anchor’s Away for TSOT374!

Hello All!

Welcome Back!

Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge from

Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #374


Here is the Sketch!


Optional Theme: Anchors Away

I was going to cut out my 2 elements…but decided to stamp them

right onto the card! I so like how it turned out!


Here is my take on the Sketch!


I did a ‘shadow technique’ on the ship and the anchor

to make them appear more dimensional. I first stamped

in  Basic Gray and the over that, stamped in Black Memento Ink .

I then colored over the ship and the anchor with my

Clear Wink of Stella pen, to give it a little shine!


Here is a close-up to see the Clear Wink of Stella, see the shine?


I have to admit…the Clear, Wink of Stella is hard to photograph!

This Card looks so much better in person!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I also sponged the edges of the front AND the inside of my Card! I used

Sahara Sand Classic Stampin’ Ink for the sponging with a finger dauber!

On the card front, I used the Spritz Tool and spritzed Crumb Cake and Pacific Point

inks, from the Stampin’ Write Markers. I also spritzed the lower left corner inside

the Card, by the shells and starfish!

  1. Oh, very gorgeous one-layer – what a great idea! I love how your sketch elements stand out, and the colors for your lovely background – beautiful! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!

  2. Cheryl – your treatment of the ship and anchor with the shadow technique really made them stand out. I thought they were cut out and attached at first! Thank you for playing along with us this week at TSOT! -Donna
