I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
And no, I do not get commission for you to join or any compensation :-) I know that I visit the Splitcoaststampers site daily- I do not know of a better bargain for seven cents a day ($25.00 a year) than being a Fan Club Member!! :-)
Since this card was created
for the Fan Club Dare To Get Dirty Gallery, I am not allowed to share any of the details of the specific
challenge but I can share the techniques and products used….
Create the mask for the moon and sand using
sticky notes, hold the masks over the Whisper White cardstock as you apply the ink for the sky using the
AquaPainter™, remove the mask and re-mask the sky portion to color in the ocean, remove the masks, re-mask and color in the sand.
Once dried, stamp the Wetlands bird
image using Early Espresso Classic Ink and cut the image out with the Big Shot™ along with
the Ovals Collection Framelits™. Mount a frame of Early Espresso cardstock using the same size oval and cut in half vertically (adhere behind the focal image allowing just part of the frame to show).
Add the Woodgrain
background (sponge with Soft Suede and Baked Brown Sugar) and add texture with the Color Spritzer Tool and an Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker.
Create the seashell by stamping with Early Espresso Classic Ink, watercoloring with Soft Suede and fussy cutting each shell.
Add the White Gel Pen accents to the shells and the waves, adhere the seashells along the edge of the focal frame, add the sentiment along with the Hemp Twine accents to finish off the card.
