Pelican Sea Scape

Challenge #216 – Word Prompt – Sketch

One can interpret the word Sketch in so many ways but I chose to make a window card. I had been wanting to make one of these type cards for a while and figured it would work for the challenge. A few weeks ago I made a background piece based on a book cover I had seen and I had a strip left over. Instead of stamping the part seen through the window I used this left over strip and added a fish and a turtle to it. These stamps came from GKD one called Wetlands and one Under the Sea. I coloured them and fussy cut so I could glue them on top. I created the acetate window by cutting the card front adding the see through behind. To give it some strength I added 2 strips on the outer edge. I stamped the sentiment and heat set it clear. The I stamped the pelican and wooden posts on a scrap piece using an Inspired by Stamping Seaside set and a bit of masking. After colouring him in with pencils I fussy cut this piece and added it to the card front. I also cut another one to glue behind to keep the inside looking tidy. I added a few cattails and grasses as well. Didn’t get quite the effect I imagined here unfortunately and because I didn’t use my Misti I can’t really fix it. I may play a bit more before actually sending this to anyone, but for now I’m leaving it alone because I know if I do anything right now I’m likely to spoil it altogether.

  3. Thanks Gayle – every once in a while I get an idea that is a good one and I remembered the different stamp sets I had to do it with too.
