By The Sea

Hello! I hope your week is going well. For my card today, I used a new set from JustRite Stampers, called By The Sea

I started by stamping the center image and border using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used Copics to color, starting with Y23 on one of the sails. 

Filled in with YR000. 

Added some shading with YR14. 

Started with E35 on the other sail. 

Filled in with E51. 

For the boat, I started with E59.

Then filled in that area with E35. 

For the ocean, I filled in with B00. 

Added shading with B26. 

Blended with B21. 

I decided the color wasn't deep enough, so I added more shading. 

For the land mass in the background, I used G28 for the shadows and filled in with YG93. 

When around the edges of the clouds with C3. 

Filled in with C1 and added deeper shadows with  N5.

Used B00 for the sky and N5 for the rope border. 

Sponged around the edges with Memento Desert Sand.

Then sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa. 

I layered with Pure Luxury (Gina K) Black Onyx, Ocean Mist and used a Kraft cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Theresa, love your card and I think that the sponging around the edges really makes the image pop. I've always loved the StampRite stamps, but was never sure what I needed to order to use the stamps. Do the stick/adhere to the wooden "things". Please explain how to use them.
