TCC138d Sunset on the Shore
We have a beautiful inspiration photo for our last summer challenge (we will be back for our Fall/Winter challenge in September) and I was inspired by the overall sunset scene with the pretty seashells as well as the shades of pinkish purple. I can just imagine sitting on the beach and watching this sunset, can't you?
SC17 Sketch would work well for the layout and will also be linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #452- #453 “Anything Goes” Challenge (another one of my favorite challenge blogs).
If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept (or the other challenge sites yet), I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Using a stencil brush, apply distress oxide inks onto a piece of white cardstock – first, applying Fossilized Amber for the sun area and reflection, then applying Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry for the sky/water areas. Keep applying ink as needed and use a water brush to create the horizon line and tapping water (I used my fingers) to blend the ink and create the clouds.
Dry the panel thoroughly with a heat tool before inking the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Trim the panel to 4” x 5 ¼”.
Tear the edge of a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, stamp the splatter images with Vintage Tea Archival ink as well as inking the torn edge. Mount onto the sentiment panel and trim the edges.
Use a water brush to water down the pearl texture paste to add shimmer to the embossed “sand”.
Adhere the entire panel onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge.
Ink the Stipple Shells images onto white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Watercolor the shells using distress oxide inks along with water-based markers. Once satisfied with the coloring, fussy cut and adhere to the card front with chipboard or dimensional foam.
Finish off the card by applying shimmer to the seashells with a clear glitter pen.
