Jute Twine Frame Card Video and Tutorial

Hello! Today I have a card featuring images from By the Sea from Gina K Designs. There is a lot going on in this card - Copic coloring, a sponged background with Copic highlights, and a jute twine frame.

Here is the video, but if you prefer to watch directly on Youtube, just click here.

Stamp the lighthouse image, from By The Sea, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Begin coloring using R27 Copic marker on the stripes.

Add R24.

Fill in the stripes using R02.

For the other areas, start with W5.

Add W3.

Fill in with W1 and use Y17 for the light.

For the ground, start with E35.

Fill in with E31, then deepen the shading at the base of the lighthouse with C5. After coloring, cut out the image with scissors.

 Cut/emboss Spellbinders® Classic Ovals #7 (with #1 being the smallest die template) from white cardstock, then sponge using Gina K Sweet Corn ink.

Sponge around the edges with Gina K Warm Cocoa.

Sponge around the edges with Gina K Sweet Mango.

Place a sticky note over the top of the oval and sponge below using more Gina K Sweet Mango.

Remove the mask and the die cut from the die template. Stamp the birds using Gina K Black Onyx.

Add ripples to the water with an opaque white pen, then use E31 to shade. Create wispy clouds using E31, then use E33 to shade. Use the blender pen to soften the clouds.

Wrap lengths of twine around a 3 ¼ by 4 ½ inch piece of Honey Mustard cardstock, layered with a piece of Rich Cocoa cardstock, to create a frame. Assemble all layers and add sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day.

I love this card (of course I love all things related to the sea/ocean). The shading on the lighthouse is magnificent and really looks like the sun is hitting those areas of the red stripes. And the jute is the perfect embellishment! I love love love this, and will definitely use it for an idea on a card I'll be making soon.
