Vitamin Sea

Donna Phelan back again.

Today is actually my Hubby's birthday, but I am not sharing a birthday card with you lol  Go figure! 
I do however have a Nautical Beach type Masculine card to share.  




I Need Vitamin Sea






How to create a wood grained background.

Inks in; Teal Blue, Dove Grey and Timber Brown.



For my Nautical Wood Grained Backgrounds I always use a Blue hue.  I love the weathered look you can achieve with this color.  My background paper measures 4 x 5 1/4 inches and I score it every 1/2 inch.  Then I just swipe my ink pads directly to the scored paper several times in each color until I get the result I like.  My Tag is die cut using the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Tags.  This I scored every 1/4", and inked in the same manner as my background paper.  The Tag has been layered 3 times on White and Navy card stock.  




Using the Cheery Lynn Lighthouses I die cut it 3 times and adhered all together, this creates a wonderful chipboard like piece. I then backed it with some Gold Glitter Paper to show each light. 
This is a fabulous die set, it has TWO Lighthouses in different sizes,
a great buy for your money! 
My Anchor is by Sizzix, it was an old one I had in my stash.  But the Dies R Us Store has so many of them to choose from, click HERE.  Adding a Ribbon Tab and an Eyelet to my Tag for accents, I also Heat Embossed my sentiment in White Powder. 
Inside I stamped an anchor in Teal Blue.





Here's What I Used:


Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Tags





Cheery Lynn Designs - Lighthouses (Set of 2)






Thanks for popping in!

Enjoy~~

  2. I love the weathered look that you got on your wood panel from the three colors. Adding the lighthouse and anchor dies are so masculine. They make a great nautical scene. Your sentiment is the icing on the cake.
