By The Tide from Stampin' Up! UK - Perfect for Men
This is the card I made using Stampin' Up! stamp set By the Tide. I've had my eye on this set for such a long time and finally caved and got it as a free prize I'd earned for my achievements with Stampin' Up!. My colour scheme is lost lagoon, cajun craze, night of navy, very vanilla and crumb cake. I 'smudged' the base card and matting layer with lost lagoon, yes tone on tone to give a softer edge to the card stock and then stamped and in some areas embossed the seaweed in the same colour or clear embossing powder. My sentiment is stamped onto a piece from the essential wooden elements embellishment set and I've added linen thread over the washi tape which sadly is now retired.
Sometimes highlighting some of the images from a set onto a punched shape, in this case 21/2 inch circle, allows you to create a collage of the set and then spotlight one image i.e. the lobster on top.
Thank you to Julie for organising the swap and I hope to soon share my partner's card with you.
