High Tide from Stampin Up for #GDP080

I wanted to get my High Tide Stamp set inky for this weeks Global Design Project entry.  It is a case the designer week and we are casing Louise Sharp.  Louise is a super talented crafter who lies in Australia and is on the Stampin Up Artisan Design Team. I simply love her style and you must pop over to her blog.

I decided that the High Tide set needed a little grunging and totally she went for it with my sponge and timeless textures.

I inked the background onto very vanilla cardstock and sponged the sky with Pool Party and Marina Mist and then inked the edge with Smoky Slate around the edge.

I stamped the lighthouse in Dapper Denim Ink and added the shadow for the lighthouse with Basic Grey Ink.  The sea was stamped in Marina Mist and Mint Macaroon Ink.

I cut a 2″ wide rectangle to make a tag and added a dapper denim circle and punched a hole in the centre and tied linen and gold thread through the hole.

I added a rectangle of gold foil cardstock as a mount to the card and then added it to a Pool Party card base.

So let me show you Louise’s original card which we are casing this week.
