I can't believe we are into July already, half the year has just whizzed by!
Anyway, 1st of the month means there's a brand new challenge over at Color Hues. Here's my card based on the new colour combo.
With it being July it could only be
Not being American, I didn't go down the 4th of July route but went with this cute lighthouse stamp that is part of a much larger collage stamp from Woodware called Sailing By.
To ensure I didn't get any unwanted stamping, I used a black watercolour brush pen to ink up just the parts of the stamp I needed.
The scene was coloured with Copic markers, pens for the sea and lighthouse and re-inkers and a sponge for the sky. To keep within our rules, I added a fussy cut strip of kraft card edged with grey Copic marker, across the bottom for the lighthouse to sit on. A few strokes from a white gel pen on the water gives the illusion of waves breaking.
To complete, I cut a frame with a couple of Avery Elle pierced rectangle dies, stamped the sentiment and then popped it up over a linen effect A5 card base.
So where will you go with these new colours? We'd love to see what you come up with.
