Stampin' Up! challenged us to bring to Convention a hand-stamped, ready-to-mail, greeting card so we could set a new World Record for the most hand-stamped greeting cards mailed from a single location at the same time. I made this card to thank my mom for financing my trip to Convention. There was a rep from Guiness at Convention checking in each of our cards to be mailed and we did set a record!
I used the "By the Tide" set for this card. I sprayed water on a panel of our Shimmery White Cardstock then dripped inks from Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Soft Sky reinker bottles to create the watery-looking background. After it dried, I stamped and embossed the coral fan twice with White and Gold embossing powders. I layered that on a Baked Brown Sugar panel stamped with the script and coral fan images in the same color and Metallic Gold, and sponged the edges. I took a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon, wet and crumpled it, then when it dried I wrapped it around the panel. Everything was layered on Coastal Cabana stamped with Baked Brown Sugar. The shell was also stamped with Baked Brown Sugar as well as embossed with Iridescent Ice powder, then watercolored with Blushing Bride and Pool Party, cut out and attached with Dimensionals.
