We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday with a theme chosen by yours truly which because I have quite a few male cards to make is:
One For The Boys
My card today is for my brother in law's birthday and in common with most of the men in my husband's family he likes the sea so my new lighthouse scene was ideal.
I decided to make my background paper using a method that came about by accident as it makes perfect watery effect paper. I'll be doing a tutorial on this soon to show exactly what to do but I can tell you it involves Distress inks, re-inkers and my Cuttlebug. If you click on the pic, you'll get the full effect.
The image I used is by Just Inklined and I printed it out on to thick, smooth cartridge paper and coloured it with Aquamarkers then trimmed it to a panel.
I glued the background paper to my card blank then added the lighthouse panel and a computer generated sentiment.
The Design Team have made some fabulous inspiration so I hope you'll pop on over to see and hoefully too join us this week.
Have a great day.
