The Paper Players – PP407 – A Sketch Challenge from Jaydee

Click to enlarge.

We have a Sketch Challenge over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, Jaydee, is asking us to create a card with 3 bands as seen in the sketch to the left.  I decided my bands would be vellum waves over a watercolored card base.  I stamped, embossed, copic-colored and fussy cut a grand whale from Papertrey Ink.  I tucked and adhered the whale into a vellum wave, added an appropriate sentiment, and secured the vellum edges with lots of blue sequins.

Supplies: Papertrey Ink Keep Swimming, Memory Box Oceana Border, Versafine Clair, Hero Arts embossing powder, Copics, vellum, Brutus Monroe watercolors, Pretty Pink Posh sequins

    Elizabeth, I am obsessed with your card. Creating the vellum waves was a perfect way to separate the elements on the card. I love the colors, too. Gorgeous card, my friend
