Hey Everyone! I've been a little lax sharing cards with you so here is one I have for this month's stamp a stacks. I know it's pretty dark, but seeing the lighthouse stamp in the new Stampin' Up! masculine set got me thinking and this is what I came up with. It's a pretty quick and simple card to make. The sponging is what takes most of the time, but not as much as I though it would. That's always good when something goes together faster than you though right? :)
I sponged on Whisper White card stock starting with Crushed Curry, then added a bit of Cajun Craze, under that I added Cherry Cobbler, then finished it off with a good chunk of Basic Black. Yes, I used the spongy pad for this. I didn't matter if it smeared and worked great for this card, however I stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I did go over things a second time here and there just to make sure the colors were blended together really well. You don't want to leave gaps between the colors, but instead make sure they flow into each other.
I stamped the lighthouse, cut it out and then sponged over it. Sometimes you can see the outline of the lighthouse like in this picture and sometimes not. I just depends on how the light is hitting the card. I made my moon the "lazy" way this time. I sponged everything, then punched out the moon and dabbed just a bit of Cajun Craze on it. It looks pretty white in this pic, but it does have just a touch of the yellow all over it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
