Different Card, Different Day #26 May 26 2017, 0 Comments

This happy birthday card was made for one of my best friend's mom's. I knew she liked the ocean so I decided to make her a lighthouse with starry night theme.

The lighthouse is a stamp with small beautiful script writing. I shaded the areas on the lighthouse with black watercolor paint to give it some dimension. The blue waves and black stars were cut from punches. The blue, purple and green background hues are Nuance pigment die mixed with water. The white squares that make up the starry night pattern are embossed with white powder after stenciling it on.

The inside of the card has a green calligraphy message written. The black turtle is a hand drawn image of mine that my mother scanned into her Silhouette machine. I glued him into place.

The blue shells were made with a vinyl cling stamp and blue embossing powder. When the light hits them right, they pop off the page.

If you want to find out even more details on how this card was made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me.  Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about day #26's card of my daily "Different Card, Different Day" blog series.
