Seascape in Neutrals

Aloha, dear friends,

We needed a masculine card to say thank you to a local, young man here. First thing I thought of was to tie the card theme with the ocean.

Stamp Set: Framescape Tropical Skies by Gina K. Designs, designed by Theresa Momber

Inks: Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo (use both fine spray and large water drops then allow to dry before moving on to gold paint. I used Gina K. Designs Black Ink to stamp the tropical scene as well as the decorations on the envelope. I doodled some ocean swirls and horizon, and coconuts in the tree by using a Memento Black marker.

Cardstock: Pure Ivory by GKD 80#, Black layering, Neenah 80# for the scene.

Gold paint splatter: Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Gold (mix with water on an acrylic block, use a wet paint brush and flick the thick, gold paint away off the edge of the block and towards the scene).

The ship's wheel is an embellishment I made a few years ago by die-cutting the wheel out, coloring it with some gold paint, pressing onto a VersaMark pad, then used Ultra Thick Embossing Powder in clear to create a solid, clear-domed cover for the wheel. There is a small champagne color gem in the center and a gold brad at the top holding it to the card.

Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts! With aloha ♥
