A little something different. Very few copics, just stamping and ink blending for this card. I needed another masculine card so I decided to try something different. I have had the Lighthouse stamp from Magnolia for some time, but had never used it.
I first started out by first making a mask for the bottom of the card for the “shore”. After adding the mask, I stamped the lighthouse and then masked it off. I also made a mask for the sun.
I wanted an evening sky, but not too dark. More like when the sun is setting after a full day. I used Distress Inks and started slowly adding the ink in areas of the sky. I started out with Spun Sugar, and then added Dried Marigold, Stampin Up’s Bashful Blue, Distriss Inks Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire.
For the water, I used Stampin Up’s Marina Mist. I added a little white gel pen to show some waves on the water. I used Stampin Up’s Crum Cake for the sand. I took a sponge and just kept dabbing the area to give it some texture and some light and dark areas for the shadows. Once the stamping was done, I added the birds from Stampin Up’s Wetlands stamp set.
I colored the lighthouse using my Copic markers…only a few I colors.
I mounted the scene on some black cardstock and then adhered it to my card base. A simple easy card to make.
Thanks for stopping by!
