Something more masculine from me this week.......
|Project By Karen Wright|
Before I give you a little run down of “How to” I’d just like to say the SplodgeAway demonstrator mat is awesome so much more Splodge space to work on, it made making this card a breeze!
I started with some Tim Holtz kraft resist card, then using shabby shutter, tumbled glass, scattered straw, walnut stain and mustard seed distress inks I coloured the kraft card, the effect of the resist showing through is impressive.
Then using a piece of SplodgeAway easy ink card I randomly stamped a ships wheel in shabby shutters when this had dried I then inked the card using tumbled glass, after this I used a splodgeAway balloon mask and ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss. I then used walnut stain to enhance the balloon pattern. To finish I distressed the edges and curled the corners.
Then for the main focus I used Adirondack caramel ink to stamp the ship on easy ink card, using a waterbrush I gently dragged the ink to give it a watercolour effect, I did the same on the waves and then added a little tumbled glass to colour the rest of the card.
After finishing all the elements I assembled the card and finished with stickles and glossy accents, charms and a fabric brad.
All inks, mats and masks available from Suzicraft
All the stamps used are stampin’ up (very old sets)
