Another week and we’re getting close to the end of my birthstone series. This week we are at September and the birthstone Sapphire. I thought Dapper Denim was the closest cardstock.
I started with a Dapper Denim base layered with Whisper White.
I used the lovely High Tide, the lighthouse is a two step stamp. I used Dapper Denim for both, one was stamped off first. I lightly sponged Soft Sky for the Sky and Stamped the sand in Tip Top Taupe, sponging underneath it too. The grass was stamped in Always Artichoke and birds in Early Espresso. The flying birds were stamped in Basic Gray.
I added a length of Linen Thread round the bottom. The sentiment was stamped in Dapper Denim and I used the Corner Punch on one corner and added an Enamel Shape.
For a slightly different look I used Watercolour card as the layer, an Aquapainter and Soft Sky to colour the sky on this one. The rest I stamped the same.
I added a length of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon around the bottom.
I heat embossed the sentiment on this one with Silver Stampin’Embossing Powder.
This card would be lovely for someone having a tough time or maybe even a Sympathy card. I love the effect the Watercolour Card makes.
