By the Tide Watercolor Card

Hi Stampers!

It's summertime, so how about a beachy card?  Today I have a card for you made with the By the Tide stamp set.  This set is really great for making all kinds of cards.  I made a background paper by inking an acrylic block with three different ink pads. Then I spritz it with some water and stamped the block on some watercolor paper.  It made a cool watery looking background.  Then I stamped and embossed the images in gold.

I layered the stamped image over a scrap of the burlap ribbon that was sitting on my desk. I frayed the ends a bit for some added texture.

I hope you liked my beach inspired card.  Where is your favorite beach?  Let me know in the comments!

By The Tide Class IV

Hi Stampers!

Today I have one last card from the By The Tide class to share with you.  This card was also cased from Create with Connie and Mary but I changed up the color scheme to feature some of the new In Colors.  I think Sahara Sand, Coastal Cabana, and Pistachio Pudding is a very beachy color combo.

Here is a close up of the focal image.  The Vintage Faceted Button was given a little more glitz by adding a Basic Rhinestone to the center.

I love how delicate the coral image in this set is.  It's the perfect accent to decorate the interior of the card.

Here's the card with its coordinating envelope.
