It has been quite a while since I entered a card into the Perfectly CAS challenge so I decided it was time to do so. I’ve had some new stamps, not yet inked, for quite a while and figured inking them was a good idea. Using a Kitchen Sinks multiple step stamping set, that I won in a challenge, called Isle of Big Bay Lake and also a Newton’s Nook set called Tides of Love I set about creating my card. First I inked up the water stamps using Distress inks, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean to get my ocean. While that was drying I stamped the whale and coloured him using a mix of Spectrum Noir grays, Sakura Glaze and Sakura glitter pens. I used the glaze pens all over him so he has some shine, but the camera doesn’t pick it up well. He was die cut with the matching dies from Newtons Nook and then I popped him up onto the water. Before I actually adhered him, I placed him in position so I could see where the sentiment should go and then stamped that first. I didn’t actually measure 1/3, but think it is about right for the rules. This may be a Valentines card but it can also work for a birthday too.
