Hello! OMGosh it's a HOT one in MN today!! Summer is here for sure! Today I have some exciting news to share with you---My 1st tutorial for Technique Tuesdays is up on the JustRite Blog!! My Technique is Inking On The Edge--click HERE to check it out!! Sharon Harnist and I will be alternating weeks with Technique Tuesday on the JustRite Stampers Blog.
The card I am sharing with you today is one that I made for my husband for Father's Day. Even though I made this card for Father's Day it would also make a wonderful birthday card for a Dad.The stamped image is from the By The Sea stamp set from JustRite Stampers. The set includes 4 Centers and 4 Interchangeable Borders and fits the 2-1/4'' x 3-1/16'' Oval Stamper. I stamped the image with Rich Cocoa ink onto Solar White cardstock. I started by coloring the water with Copic markers.Next I colored the sky and the shinning light from the lighthouse.I used two colors of green for the grass. The black and the gray tones were used to color the top and bottom of the lighthouse and the birds. The yellow was used to add the light in the lighthouse. The last part of the image to color was the lighthouse and I used three shades of blue for the coloring. My husband's favorite color is blue. *wink*I used the Classic Ovals Small S4-112 die #5 die template to make the oval diecut and then I inked the edges with Antique Linen ink.Next I wanted to color these chipboard letters to match the card. First I went over the entire piece of chipboard with Copic marker B21.Next I added a medium shade of blue.For the last step I added a dark blue just along the edge of each letter.Here is a close-up of all the letters.Here is a close-up of the lighthouse image. I also added a label and a tag diecut. I used Small Labels S4-169 die #5 and Fancy Tags S4-235 to create the diecuts. For the bottom half of the card I embellished it with some jute trim, shells, Flower Soft, blue cord, and blue rhinestones. To add dimension between the layers I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™. For the background I embossed the Sea Scape Impressabilities™ onto a piece of Core'dinations cardstock from the Chocolate Box and then lightly sanded the paper.
