On the Lake…

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I told you I had more boats coming!  hehe   I’ve had this stamp for awhile, love the simplicity of it but then I wasn’t so sure about how to color it!  The water isn’t really this green IRL… figures… ugh! Here’s the stamp info… Memory Box F1770 On the Lake.

As soon as I saw this last Memory Box die release I jumped right over to order!  I had to have this Honeyblossom Sprig!  I glued three cuts of green together then cut one in white and cut out the flowers and one in yellow and just used the centers.  I did shape the back side of the white flowers a little with my McGill Stylus set on a mouse pad.

The woodgrain background is an older stamp from Hero Arts (SS1000), stamped and edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink… it’s not big enough to cover the whole card so I stamp it four times… I’ve done this several times with cards that I’ve posted.  Love the random look of it.

The postal frame is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die.  The mat for the focal image is cut with the Perfect Layers 1/16th in. layer tool… the best investment I ever made for card making!

The postal cancellation and sentiment are from CC Designs and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. It stamps the sharpest and cleanest image for sentiments of any ink out there… so worth the money!   Bummer I forgot to take a picture of the inside.  I layered white on green to the kraft card with the Perfect Layers tools.  Then stamped two more sentiments from the same CC Designs All About Dad sentiment set.  Yes,  I used my other tool I can’t stamp with out!  My Stamp a ma jig!

I stamped “On the Lake” with Clearsnap Archival Wicked Black ink and  watercolored it with Ranger Distress markers… I really do love them!  They color and blend so nicely on the Canson Manga paper I’ve linked to below.    I appreciate it so much when you make your purchases through my links!!!  I’m encouraged to keep working and sharing for sure!  Thank YOU!

  3. I just want to go fishing in that boat !! Such a lovely scene and so peaceful. Great job of coloring with the distress markers. Wish I had your talent. I just need to practice.

  4. What a fabulous card. Love that image and your colouring is splendid. Thanks for joining us at Lets Ink It Up Embellies challenge this month! I love dies as well and will use that tip of paper piecing them for depth – thanks!

  5. I love this “simple” (NOT! heehee) card! Adding the stamp cancellation in the corner is so clever, I love how it compliments the picture! As always, I love how you used the woodgrain stamp. Lucky me…clicked on the link to buy the MB die and it was sold out….got a little reprieve from spending!
