WATERFRONT

I will admit I was a bit nervous about starting this watercolor-inspired card.  The waterfront scene looks so pure and pristine and I wasn’t sure I could produce the same effect.  Once I started, I discovered that the stamping was quite easy and the finished card was quite beautiful.

WP_20180316_15_53_58_Pro 1Our waterfront scene pictures a sunny day, blue sky with birds,  mountains, a grassy field with trees, a lake and a sandy beach.  One or two little huts are perched in the foreground.  This sounds so peaceful.  However, I will admit my peaceful hands were pretty well inked-up by the time the stamping was finished.  Ten inks were used to complete this  scene – Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Tuxedo Black Memento.  The sky was lightly sponged with a sponge dauber in Pool Party.

Several of the Waterfront stamps are vague in shape and can be used for the water, grass, and sandy beach.  There is a mountain shape which was stamped once in Crumb Cake and again to the right in Soft Suede.  The Garden Green trees can be stamped multiple times to give a forest effect or just once to show 3 simple trees.  There is a stamp that gives a lake effect. The hut and sun are well defined shapes.   The birds come from the High Tide stamp set that we used in 2017. The art piece was framed in Early Espresso and layered onto Bermuda Bay embossed with the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder. The finished Pool Party card is quite striking.  No embellishments are needed.

So far we have seen 3 of our projects for April Stamp Camp – a charming flower cart, birds on a branch, and now a waterfront scene.  Stay tuned for our last card – one that was TOTALLY out of my comfort zone.

Don’t forget to let me know if you will be coming to Stamp Camp on April 5, 6, or 7.
