At the Beach

Hi there,

I created this beach card using the new Karten-Kunst Muscheln stamp set:

  • stamp some shells from the Karten-Kunst Muscheln, Ammonit and Meeres-Schnecken sets with Versafine Onyx Black onto watercolor paper
  • color the images with watercolors
  • add highlights with Finetec Mica Watercolors Moon Gold
  • create a background with the help of Distress Inks (Uncharted Mariner, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Brushed Corduroy) and a hill stencil
  • add splatters of watered-down Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy and white gouache
  • add seas spray with white acrylic paint and a stipple brush 
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Muscheln set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder


I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

Peaceful Palm Tree

Hi there,

I created this peaceful card using an image from the Anjas Basteltraum Happy Camper stamp set:

  • stamp the image from the Anjas Basteltraum Happy Camper set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
  • mask the image and create a background using a hill shaped stencil and different colors pf Distress Ink (Brushed Corduroy, Carved Pumpkin, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire)
  • add splatters of watered down Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy and white gouache to the sand part
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers,add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and highlights with a white gel pen
  • stamp the sentiment from the Anjas Basteltraum Glückwünsche set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder - make sure that the background is completely dry and use an anti-static powder tool
  • add a strip of kraft cardstock and of patterned paper to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase


I hope you got inspired.
