Guy Greetings From Land To Sea By The Tide Masking Technique, Stampin Up! UK

Today's card was featured briefly in a recent video talking about my submissions as part of a selection process with Stampin Up!
Today I  have this super masculine card made with a combination of stamp sets, and a Masked sentiment. I have gone with a colourscheme that mimics the colours ofsea, and therefore the Retiring 2014 - 2016 In Colours were perfect for the job. I added in some Basic Black and Basic Gray to get those under water images of the Turtles and seahorses.

As always there is an accompanying Video. For the time being I am reducing my video's to 3 times weekly. Hopefully, BT will be able to resolve the errors on our broadband connection. As soon as that happens, I will return to 5 video's per week.

  4. Cut down some Post It Notes, retaining the sticky strips; use the sticky trips to mask the sentiment between the two lines  and stamp your card from using a combination of the In Colour inks pads, plus Basic Black and Basic Gray ink pads.

  7. Die cut the next size up Framelit using Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, remove the top scallop edge and mount the stamped label onto the Blackberry Bliss label (you may need to trim off more  of the label to get a snug mat.'Wrap around some Silver Metallic Thread, then mount the label onto the card front using Stampin Dimensionals.
