Double D, Twine

Good Morning!  

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Here is your Inspiration Tile for this Challenge:


Here's what I decided to create:

First I die cut the center out using a Spellbinders Standard Circle die.  Then I created my wood grain background by scoring every 1/4".  Then I just swiped inks in Dove Grey and Teal Blue over the card stock until I got the look I liked....and I loooooove these colors.  If you have never made one I suggest you try, it's quite a lot of FUN!

Taking the Circle cut I sponged Oxide Distress inks in Iced Spruce, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint and Wilted Violet.  Then I dropped water all over and spritzed it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sweet Mint, for that fun Oxide look.  Heat Embossed the coral/seaweed image from Stampin' Up! By The Tide stamp set in a pretty Seafoam Green.  Sentiment Heat Embossed in White from the Simon Says Sail Away -- Starfish, Sand Dollar and Anchor from that same set.  Anchor die cut also Heat Embossed in Silver.

Images colored with Copic Markers.  

Added some pretty Teal Baker's Twine and tied a few UN-Nautical like Knots in it for a bit of interest.  Also added that perfect Charm, a glittery Pink Heart and my embossed Anchor.
Heart is from the PTI Dress Up Dolls--Puppy Love set.

I backed my wood grain panel with Fun Foam so the circle die cut would set right inside, then I was able to add my Starfish and Sand Dollar dies cuts. 

This card wil also be entered into the Scrapy Land Challenge, Anything Goes.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!
