Summer Sailing

Hi everyone.  I have a really easy CAS general card to share today.   It was prompted by the new sketch today at CAS(E) this Sketch.

I found a leftover watercolor piece smooshed with Salty Ocean distress ink.  It made me think of creating a summer sailing scene with it, so I smooshed Peacock Feathers on the bottom for the water.  It was dried with a heat tool and then die cut with a stitched rectangle.

The sentiment was black heat embossed with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  The sailboat and seagulls were die cut from white cardstock 3x to be stacked for dimension.

I wanted the water to glisten in the light, so I used a clear Spica pen to add sparkle.  And that is it.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

Up on the Rooftop

Hi there.  So I am having internet connection issues, so this will be a quick post.  My Christmas card today was inspired by “Up on the Housetop” Christmas song.

Up on the Rooftop Reindeer CRd

The scene I wanted to create was having the reindeer playing on the snowy rooftop.  I heat embossed the reindeer in black and watercolored them and the sky with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on hot press watercolor paper.  I die cut the reindeer with the matching dies.  The brick detail was created by ink blending through a stencil.  I used Sahara Sand ink for the wall and Rusty Hinge, Barn Door and Black Soot distress inks for the chimney.

The icicles were die cut from white cardstock.  I added glossy accents and sprinkled Dazzling Diamond glitter on top to give it a glistening effect.  The shadows beneath the reindeer were done with Copics.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and used a white gel pen to add snow and complete my snowy rooftop scene.  The whole panel was mounted on a top folding white card base.
