 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #40
Marine, Ocean or Sea

This fortnights challenge theme has been chosen by DT sister Sue.  What a great theme and thanks to IKEsART for this fabulous image which is so perfect for where I live - on the Northumbria coast where we regularly see fishing boats.  I just know this card will find the perfect recipient.

To make the card I created a DL size card out of black card.  To this I added a layer of water themed vellum ready for the image and sentiment to be added.  The image was coloured with Polychromes and mounted on black then orange backing paper.  To finish off the image I added a border of gold peel off stickers.  The text was stamped onto the vellum and embossed with fine silver embossing powder.  I then used the compass direction stamp from Creative Stampers magazine and again heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  2 small orange gems to hide the glue dots for attaching the vellum on the right side of the card completed the project.

Image used:-  The Lighthouse by IKEsART
Colouring:- Polychromes
Other items:- sea design vellum, gold peel off stickers, stamps from Creative Stamper magazine, silver heat embossing powder
