Moonshadow Ink Nautical Father's Day Card
This is an 8" x 8" card that incorporates some of the techniques with the inks that I've mentioned before (please click on the photo for a closer look).
I misted the base card with copper and green Moonshadow Mists and added the scrunch technique using various colours as a border, and added a strip of copper mirri card over the join.
The centre mount has been given a wash of gold onto hammered card, then I dabbed the wet ink with kitchen towel to lift some of the colour away to leave paler shades. This pieces was then mounted onto copper mirri card attached with copper brads.
I stamped the script stamp with brown Stazon and tore the edges. A wash was added but with copper ink then again dabbed with kitchen towel. I then painted the edges with ink.
The main images were embossed with Moonglow 2 tone embossing powders (obsidian colours of sapphire, copper, and emerald). They were detail painted with the inks then mounted onto copper mirri card and attached with brads. The galleon is attached with silicone glue.
The wording was made the same way as the background mounts, the brads are for decorative purposes as the piece was glued into place with silicone glue.
The final touch is the driftwood/rope which I mentioned in an earlier post, (thanks Hamish!)
