We spent 4th July weekend on the islands west of Seattle, and as soon as I saw the lighthouse in Port Townsend, I thought about the Pretty Pink Posh Nautical stamp set, and knew I had to use it to create the scene!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you have probably seen as shift in my card making style! I have been trying to make more scene-critter cards and it’s been fun!
To make this card, I started by coloring the boat and lighthouse from the Nautical stamp set, and cutting it out with the coordinating dies. I also stamped and colored some clouds, and the sun from the Fly a Kite stamp set, and cut them out to using the coordinating dies.
Next I inked up two pieces of paper, one with brown ink for the sand, and the second with blue ink to create the water/sea. I added water splatters, along with some black paint splatters to add some depth to the paper. Once it dried, I die cut the brown piece using the Stacked Edge 1 dies, and the water with of the the Stitched Waves dies.
Last piece of the scene was the sky which I create by lightly inking up the card front with some light blue ink, and then dry embossing it with on of the Layered Cloud Stencils, cause you cannot have a PNW sky without some clouds!
I assemebled the card with some glue and foam tape to add dimension, and finished off my stamping the sentiment from the Nautical stamp set, along with some of the birds that I colored in with a black marker.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!
