AAA Cards Challenge #118: frame

This challenge was chosen by our DT member Ksenija and it's Frame.

Our sponsor this fortnight is: Stamplorations.

For my card I made the frame by choosing two sizes of a stitched nesting die set. Any you have will do.
I made the sea by coloring a strip of Talens Ecoline (indigo) on waterart paper by Kippers.
Splattered it with Dylusions white spray as if it was sea foam.
I  diecut the sailboat from Joy! Crafts from sturdy card.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted ( brushed greetings II) and I stamped it with Versafine onyx black ink.

I  used taperunner to adhere the watercolor panel to the cardbase, then mounted the frame with foamtape and placed it on a slant. I also mounted the sailboat with foamtape.

This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

  2. Schitterende kaart Maaike.
    Ecoline maakt een mooie zee, moet ik ook eens proberen ;o)

  3. Loving your foamy sea and the sailing boat fits perfectly inside that frame. Great tip,about how to create a frame with two nesting dies too.

  4. I love your card Maaike! The sea is fabulous (what a great shade of blue btw) and a great way of using a frame to focus attention on the die cut image!

  5. Brilliant idea to have only sea coloured strip and white die cuts! - Sweet Kobylkin

  6. Beautiful scene. Love that you kept the frame and boat white. =) Tracie
