Magnolia-licious DT Nautical Blog Hop
Hi Everyone! And welcome to another fantabulous Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop. This month Diana challenged us to create something using a nautical theme and I couldn't wait to get started! You can get all of the details of the Hop and how to join in on the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites. You can also start over there if you missed the beginning. But, if you arrived here from Becca's blog then you're on the right track!
Here's my card...
Wishing You Were Here
Here's the front of the card when it's closed. I used #616 Lifebuoy, which you can get from Magnolia-licious. I stamped the image, scanned it, and then brought it into MS Word to enlarge it. I then printed it with a laser printer and painted it with watercolor. I love how it turned out. The squigglies are glitter and didn't photograph well. Believe me, it looks much better in person.
Here's an angled view so you can see the dimension of the card. I really like how this card turned out. The dp's are from TPC Studio's - Heartfelt Travel collection. The cs is Bazzill. I embellished it very simply with some shells that I found in my button drawer.
I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger Distress Inks. Here are the details:
Copics: E00, 02, 35, 44, 50, 53, RV21, W1, 3, 5, 7, C5
Distress Inks: black soot, barn door, faded jeans
The sentiment was printed on a laser printer. I added some glitter just to make it pop a little.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my easel card. I absolutely loved making it. Don't forget to continue the Blog Hop by stopping by Patti Jo's blog from here. She's got something awesome to show you! Have fun!!!
Edit: It has been brought to my attention by a viewer that I have violated Magnolia's Angel Policy by enlarging the Lifebuoy. My apologies to Magnolia for this. It truly was not an intentional violation. It never occured to me that an enlargement was considered a modification since the integrity of the image remained the same. Going forward I will not make the same mistake.
