On the Beach

On the Beach

Hi there!

Or perhaps I should should AHOY!?
Maybe not!  Save that for another time

Claire Jackson is here today and she
has brought a really nice card for us
using a very clever background technique

 "Man cannot discover new oceans unless 
he has the courage to lose sight of the shore ― 
André Gide

Using a stamp positioner, stamp the 
gradation stamp in faded jeans 
Distress Oxide ink on smooth stamping 
card approximately 6 1/2” square.

 Re-ink the lower part of the stamp in 
vintage photo and stamp again.

Re-ink parts of the top of the stamp in broken china...

... and stamp once more.

Use masking tape to position the seaside 
template and stencil ‘explore’ in broken china.

Next stencil the ship’s wheel in walnut stain.

Add the quotation, highlights and shading
 with a black fine line pen, a grey alcohol marker
 and a white gel pen.

Ink the seaside memories stamp in faded jeans. 
Without using a block press the stamp onto 
an 8 x 8” card blank so that the outside edges 
are covered. It doesn’t matter if the 
impressions overlap a little.

On a separate piece of card stencil the shells 
in vintage photo and broken china.

Cut out the shells and place them on a 
piece of foam.

 With an embossing tool press gently
 on the back of the card to shape them.

 Assemble all the pieces and mount them, 
adding a few sequins for a bit of sparkle."

Materials used:

Distress Oxides: broken china, faded jeans, vintage photo, walnut stain
Blue Fern Studio: seaside memories
Card blank: 8 x8” scalloped

Super card Claire.  Thank you
Love how you made the background

Have you all seen the Kaisercraft Stencils?
I think they are fabulous value for money
in one 12x12 stencil, you get four individual
6x6 stencils.  Now that can't be bad...........

'Till tomorrow
