I have this fabulous Planner Street stamp set called: Party Planner. It is so adorable, with little critters and little party friends. I decided to stamp out the sailor girl and see if I could color her up and make a card with her. After she was colored, I could see her waiting for her loved one to come home. My scene is her standing looking outside, in the evening, dreaming of when her love will come home. I used the flowing stars and bursts from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero, August 2017, Celestial theme stamp set. I stamped them in the top 1/3 quadrant of my card navy blue panel with satin pearl embossing powder, then embossed them again with holographic embossing powder. I love how the colors shine when you move the card around. I die cut a silver glitter frame to have the girl looking out of. I used a small piece of white cardstock and used my distress oxides and made a night scene with purple, blue and black with the same embossed star images from the Hero Arts kit. I positioned the frame with foam tape over the distressed piece of cardstock, then adhered the girl to the frame. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and it is embossed with white powder. I love how the distress oxides really make the outside night sky pop. Lastly, I mounted the navy blue panel on a side folding card. I hope her loved one comes home soon :). Enjoy. Look at the sparkle on the night stars, gorgeous!
I’ll be entering this card in the following challenges:
