Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope your well, and crafting your way through this difficult.

I am trying to work, with some colour theory at the moment. My favorite place to find, colour combinations at the moment is through Pinterest or Pattern Papers in my stash.   

So after being inspired I came up with a beautiful masculine combination.



I love pulling inks from my collections and seeing how they work together.

Gina K card Stock in Ocean Mist 6" x 6"


Gina K Ink pads,  Prickly Pear, Ocean Mist, In The Navy, and Stormy Sky.


Nuvo Gloss Drops In Caribbean Ocean


Lawn Fawn Vellum


Card Blank 7" x 7"

Neenah 80lb cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"  





Taking you neenah cardstock start randomly, stamping out your boats in the navy ink colour. 



Then start adding more images using different colours from your chosen combination.

It starts to come together like a pattered paper.



Cut your card stock in ocean mist,to 6 x 6 inches. Then mat it on to your card blank.



Then taking your stamped piece and mat over the ocean mist card stock.



Using the DAD die cut out once in ocean mist card stock and three times in white cardstock.( I use my watercolor scraps.)



Then using the negative card stock use to line up your letters and build them up so they become like a chip board embellishment.



Using a piece of vellum, lay on to the middle of your card and line up your letters.



Once you have attached them and let them dry for a minute or two. Turn them over and glue behind the letters to attach your vellum to the card front.



I place a acrylic block on the top to hold them in place for a stronger hold.



Once they are dry, carefully rip around the vellum.

Then add your nuvo drops.



Your card is now complete, I added a fathers day stamp but any sentiment would work. 


Happy Stamping

and Stay Safe
