Evening Sunset

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.
