Meet today's card inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this morning and the wonderfully done miniature paintings by Lorraine Loots. There is also a video to watch of her being inspired while painting these miniatures. I chose a seaside painting as my inspiration.
I began by creating the woodgrain paper which is so easy to make using glue and a scoring tool. This time, I used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Weathered Wood Distress inks to colour the paper. Using those colors gave my woodgrain such a 'beachy' feel which was perfect for the images I wanted to use. For those of you that may have missed how to create your own woodgrain, go here:
Next, I stamped the panel using my MISTI and stamps from Gina K and Flonz Stamps with Memento black ink. Then, I sponged on Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress inks giving the panel a feel of a sunset.
Adding my card to these challenges:
