Ahoy me hearties :-) Today's card is a summery sea scene using some new stamps I got recently from Chocolate Baroque. I'd wanted these stamps for ages and couldn't resist when I found they were on special offer. I really wanted to try creating a reflection with promarkers and I'm quite pleased with the result.
I stamped the main image (from the Seashell cottage themeplate) on to coated cardstock, masked the image and a sun to brayer the sky and then brayered the sea using Waterfall Big& Juicy inkpad. I coloured the image with promarkers and used the same shades and a blender pen to add the reflection in the sea. I used an inksentials white pen to create the waves around the posts. I used sea green and cool grey 1 promarkers to add a reflection of the water to the seagulls' bellies. To finish off I stamped the sentiment in black versafine and embossed the anchor (also from Seashell Cottage) with gold ep. The finished scene is edged with a gold krylon pen and matted on some navy card.
