The challenge this week over at Crazy4Challenges is to put sand on your project. Click on the link for the details. This card comes together quickly.
Step 1: The base card measures 5 x 7″. So first cut a rectangle from white card stock that measures 4.75″ x 6.75″ Using the die set below, place the “Lighthouse” die at the very top of the rectangle and run through your cutting machine. 1365 – CountryScapes – Land & Sea
I colored the light house with Copic markers and the sand area with PanPastels.
Step 2: Cut a rectangle from white card stock that measures 4.75″ x 6.75″. Using Elizabeth Designs stencil called S016 – Clouds and Grass, stencil some clouds on the top half of this rectangle. I over layed the lighthouse pc. from step 1 to let me know where to stop the stenciled clouds. Then I used Copic markers to color the ocean area.
The photo above shows a white edge on the top of the area I colored as sand. That’s a really cool embossed edge that the die creates. I chose not to color that edge because I thought it looked like ocean foam. I left some white areas in the ocean I colored with Copics, to look like white caps in the distance.
Step 3: The sentiment is a stamp from a set by Elizabeth Craft Designs: CS058 – Summer Sentiments
Step 4: The little shells are from die set by Karen Burniston: 1038 – Tropical Scene
I cut them from white card stock and colored with PanPastels
Step 5: The birds are a die set by Frantic Stamper called FRA-die-09921 Flying Gulls. I cut them with white card stock and added a little black Copic Marker to the wings.
Step 6: Adhere the lighthouse pc. to the sky pc. with Clear double sided Adhesive. Add the shells and Gulls, and you’re done! Here’s another look.
Thanks so much for stopping by and please join us this week!
