One last card in the High Tide Stamp Set series. Isn’t it pretty? I used Dapper Denim and Whisper White cardstock, Pacific Point 1/4″ stitched-edge ribbon and the Seaside textured impressions embossing folder.
I actually cheated in the the materials I used, did you catch it? I used a different colour ribbon than I used for the Cardstock, GASP! But sometimes you just have to work with what is available, and honestly there’s hardly a difference noticed. My previous cardstock for High Tide was Pacific Point so I wanted a bit of change.
The technique this time is almost the same with just a couple of differences. I stamped the lighthouse in Smoky Slate and Dapper Denim. I then masked the lighthouse, and added the rocks using Crumb Cake Ink. Then I used 2 more masks to cover the rocks and mask the sky area. I then sponged Pacific Point (see, I did tie in the colour) and Dapper Denim for the water. Next I used Craft White Ink to add the ripples over top of the water.
Then remove the sky mask, and mask the water. (Make sure your craft ink is dry before you do this step, it only takes a minute or two. Maybe while you are waiting, you can emboss your Whisper White cardstock with the seaside embossing folder, and stamp your greeting.)
For the sky, I used Soft Sky ink, and just sponged it. Next, leaving the mask on for the lighthouse only, I pressed the versamark pad across the bottom of the rocks and water, and embossed with clear embossing powder. It only makes a slight difference, but subtle enough to make your image “pop”.
Next step is to cut out your lighthouse image, using the Layering Ovals Framelits. Next assemble your card. Your backings behind your chosen greeting and lighthouse are the same as your main card colour, in this case Dapper Denim.
