For You - sea scene landscape hand coloured 7x5in card - Day 151 of my 365 day challenge

For You - sea scene landscape hand coloured 7x5in card - 
Day 151 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I am really enjoying trying to create landscapes using distress/dye based inks and was pleased with the way this turned out - though it is a bit annoying to find that I have splashed some water on it....anyway...


How I made this card:-

  • I first of all took an A6 piece of white stamping card and coloured the sky in leaving parts of it white to give the impression of clouds. I tried to make the top part of it darker than the rest by adding more ink.
  • I then coloured the bottom two thirds of the card with green inks (Altenew and Tim Holtz), graduating the colour to make it darker at the bottom.
  • I then decided where I wanted the sea to be and added some blue/green to a section of the again making it darker towards each side.
  • Using two strips of paper, I masked off parts of the card and inked through it using True Graphite Altenew ink to create the land on either side.
  • I added some yellow/green to the bottom of each landscape to give an impression of a beach and then added some grey strokes on the left hand one for trees.
  • I then used two different grey alcohol markers to create a border edge and then stamped the fence several times across the panel, leaving a small gap in it so people can go through it :) 
  • I edged card with a bright blue alcohol marker and mat and layered it on to a slightly larger panel of black card and then stuck the whole thing on to a 7x5" white card using foam pads.
  • Finally I stamped the For You sentiment in the centre of the card (right hand side) using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then added 2 lots of 3 blue gems (Hobby House).

And there you are a really easy but fun card to make and would be great to give!
