Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

Today we are showcasing Jennifer's fabulous card.  It epitomises the glorious summer weather we are having at the moment.

The instructions for the above card is as follows:-

As the weather is beautiful and sunny I decided to show you another seaside card.

I made a base card from blue cardstock,  onto this I matted some white card then some black card, leaving small borders showing each time.   I put a nestie die onto another piece of white card  just to the right of the card centre so when the lighthouse 
stencil is laid onto the card, the lighthouse will be in the centre of the coloured nestie shape and the rest of the image will be outside the shape.   Colour in the shape of the nestie with the blue distress ink.

Lay the stencil over the inked card and spread the black stars sparkle medium over the stencil using the palette knife. Remove excess medium and return to jar.   Carefully lift up the stencil and leave the image to dry.

When dry, blend the distress ink around the card edges and stamp the swirl stamp in blue then in black to represent the sea.

Punch all four corners with the corner punch.Matt the image onto the black card.   Stamp the boat onto white card using black ink.   Colour the sail with blue distress ink and the boat with black stars sparkle medium.   
Cut out the boat and fix to the sea using silicone glue.

Ranger Distress Ink.
