Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for Pink Ink Stamps and I have a fun summertime card to share with you using a couple of the Pink Ink Stamps.
To Start I stamped the On the Boardwalk image onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color all of the images. Some of the image were just colored with the pens and on some of them I did some blending of the color with water. I used two different paint brushes for the blending--round 8 and liner 2.
After all of the images were colored then I did a little bit of shading at the bottom and I also colored the sky. To achieve the look of clouds in the sky first I added the color and then I used a heat tool to speed up the drying time. Next I added just plain water in the shape of a cloud in the sky. I let the water sit for a few seconds and then I blotted the area with a paper towel. Doing this pulled up the water in that area and leaving the appearance of a cloud.
I added some red and white twine and an ice cream cone charm which I thought would be a fun little embellishment and it worked perfectly for the summertime theme of the card.
I wanted to add some sparkle and dimension to the card so I went over some of the areas with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Brush Pen. Then I applied Glossy Accent to some of the images. I also added the sentiment right under the boardwalk image.
I used two of the dies from the Tonic Studios Mixed Rectangles Layering Die Set to cut and emboss the two rectangle shapes. I used scor-tape to apply white craft foam to the back of the image and give it a little dimension. Then I adhered everything to a red A2 card base.
This is such a fun summertime image! It would be great for a birthday card, a day at the carnival or just a fun summertime thinking of you card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your summer and staying cool!
