'Explore journey' card

Hello people.

It's Chirali here with my first DT post - my take on current challenge with a quick tutorial. I have made a sea themed 'Explore journey' card which went best with what I got in DT kit. 

Here it is:

First of all, on white cardstock, I adhered a patterned brown paper and kept aside. Then took a water resistant paper from French Riviera Prima Marketing Paintables which I have got in my DT pack. Its a damn cool paper pad with printed sheets and water resistant sheets of same images. Just add a watercolour on paper and you will see images coming out of it, that too with feeling of embossing. 

See the way it looks when I started colouring with distress inks.

Final one. I tore the sides of it and adhered with foam tape after adding doily both sides. And started decorating it. I used spellbinders die to create frames, a fussy cut gorjuss girl and vintage flourishes die from joy crafts. 

The main attraction of this card, according to me, is stamped and fussy cut corners of the main image. That is Mudra Vintagy Flourish stamp. I stamped them with two shades of distress inks- peacock feathers and cracked piatachio, and fussy cut it. A closer look at the same:

Other things like shell are from my stash. 

You can see that shine on paper, a feel of embossing. 

I hope you enjoyed it. 

Thank you,
Chirali. :)
