Hi there. Here is one of the tutorials I promised from the GKD release samples I made. I still have several others to do, so I'll be working through those for my next several posts. This card was made with the new free with three set, Life's A Beach.
I began by stamping the sandcastle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, starting with W3.
I added shading with W5.
For the little shells, I filled in with Y21 and then added E95 to shade.
I filled in the area in the doorway and the foreground with E31 and then deepened the shading with E33.
Added N5 in the doorway, then I think I added some E35. I missed that photo, but I didn't like that look.
So I covered it up with N3. That was better.
Next, I used BG10 around the sand castle.
Then added BG05.
I used Pure Luxury Soft Sand for my card base. I think Soft Sand is retired, but there is a wonderful replacement color, called Sandy Beach. I need to order some of that! But for now, I just used a piece of the Soft Sand from my stash. After scoring the fold with my Scor-Buddy, I lined up the largest of my Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Rectangles on the inside front and held it in place with painters tape.
Then I ran it through my Spellbinders Grand Calibur® to emboss.
I layered the image panel with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Ocean Mist, then adhered. The sentiment was stamped on white and then cut out. I adhered that with Pop Dots. The finished card size is 5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back with another tutorial soon. Have a great day!
