|Here is peek of my card... loved the result, like a lot of cards I had some ideas and these governed the way it took shape.|
|As planned on water colouring part of it, stamped about four images in
mixture of waterproof Archival inks, Jet Black, Sepia + deep blue -
Cobalt. Stamped one in just Cobalt, which used for main image then the
others were in mixture of black, sepia and blue swiped over the stamp. |
Next chose Cobalt inked image to do the sky + sand. Used a mixture of Distress Ink pads, on the sky and sea, Salty Ocean, Denim Blue, Stormy sky. For sand - used Antique Linen, Mustard seed, + little vintage photo, especially around all the corners of the image, to give it depth of field to the image.
the cut out Surfboards, shaped then glued with silicone, and front two were added on top of first lot. Once it was
dry, I added glossy accents to the Surfboards, they looked like the
real thing then.|
I really loved this image, it was so much fun to play with it. To finish the image I dusted it lightly around the edges with DI Vintage Photo, to age the edge of card which was stark white. Then took a snippet of DP with sea words on it in lovely turquoise colour.
|The corners are cut out pieces from a discontinued set from Cuttlebug called Vintage corners. I've cut the die cut done to make photo corners, as shown in image.|
|Stamped the Happy Birthday with Lawn Fawn stamp Set - "So much to say" on cream card in Onyx Black Versafine Pigment ink pad, and clear embossed. Hand cut a greeting banner and backed in black card. |
Wanted to make a gatefold card. Was going to do it in usual portrait style, but the image was landscape - so made it landscape. Embossed a sheet cream, similar to greeting banner, with a favourite folder for male cards, Sizzix Dot Matrix embossing folder. Needed to extend my embossing folder - to see how to do it, look here. This was smooched with Distress ink Antique Linen, use this colour a lot. Then took a snippet of turquoise and embossed it with large embossing folder, by Embossaliscious Swirls folder. Added it to bottom and then top added image. Three black small brads on the side finished the card off.
