So my last card is all about the stamping.

One die-cut snuck its way in there but I thought it would be nice to show how one amazingly versatile stamp set, SHORE LUCKY in this case, can make a simple card where you don’t have to worry about dimension or embellishments as the stamps do all the work for you….well you do have to get involved a bit.

I even have a tutorial to show you, so grab a cup of tea, mug of coffee (or something stronger if you need it) and let’s get started.

I began by creating a sunset on watercolour card with some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens

Next I used one of the dies from the WAVES & CLOUDS SET to cut a mask from scrap paper.

Taking my super black RAVEN HYBRID INK PAD I sponged at the bottom of my coloured background to create an ‘island’.

 I then cut the stunning SCALLOPED RECTANGLE from black card as I wanted a frame.

I used my stamp platform to align my stamps where I wanted them so that they would fit within the frame once I had stuck it down.

Using my RAVEN HYBRID INK PAD I stamped another palm tree, a sentiment, the whale tail, splashes and birds all from the super SHORE LUCKY set to make my scene, and I completed it by adding highlights and interest with a white pen.

I wanted to ‘look out’ onto my idyllic island scene so I took the frame that I had previously cut from the SCALLOPED RECTANGLE  and removed one of the longer sides, inked with white, so that it would appear as a sort of gateway.

 All complete and all it needed was to be attached to a card blank. Simple really!

Hop along and leave a comment so you could win!
