CTMH Stamp Of The Month - Voices Of The Sea

 I received this month's Stamp Of The Month for Close To My Heart, called Voices of the Sea.  It is a great set!!  I have used tow of the images and two of the sentiments from the set to make these two cards.  I also used cuts from Cricut for the "ships portal/window".  I did the same card w/one in reverse.


__________________________________________________________________________


This was my first one.  The sentiment was cut out using a stitched tag die cut.  I added pearls around the portal and used some silver "gems" on the four corners of the card.  I used to sea shells, a sea turtle charm and two different types of twine.  For the background on both the paper and the behind the image I used dry chalk to give it more of an ocean look by rubbing it on with an eyeshadow sponge.



Like I said, I basically used the same layout, Ijust flipped it, for my second card.  For this one I used one I used a different sentiment from the set and used a punch to "cut" it out.  I used the Cricut to create the anchor.  I added 3 sea shells and some pearls.  I used the same silver "gems" from the last card on three of the corners.  The round "pearls" on the portal were done using White Opal Liquid Pearls from CTMH.  I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the fish.   I used the same chalk technique on the paper and behind/around the image as I did on the first card.



Thanks for coming by and taking a look!  :)

Both of these cards are wonderful! The porthole (awesome die cut) design, stamped images and added embellishments make for a great underwater scene. Overall great design. Thanks for sharing with the Double D, "Under the Sea" Challenge.
