My Little Light - #GDP069


Thanks for joining me again after the Christmas break.
I have been having a ball with my family and still have a few weeks left yet to spend with my children before they head back to school.


And that's one reason why I decided to take part in a challenge. I thought I would write a blog about one of the gorgeous stamp sets that is available NOW from the new Occasions Catalogue.

'HIGH TIDE' is the set I have chosen to use for the card challenge over at Global Design Project this week for #GDP069
The challenge this week is a colour challenge, here are the colours.

I chose Basic Black for my free colour and used Smokey Slate as a matt silver.
 I highlighted the Smoky Slate with Silver Embossing Powder for a two tone silver effect.

I made up a couple of  partially done fronts, just to help show you some of the steps below.

  1.  Stamp both of your base images with Smoky Slate.
  2. Using the Embossing Buddy lightly dust the base image. Then stamp the second part of the Light House with Versamark ink and place over the first image. 
  3. Using the sand image, lightly ink the egdes (rock'n'roll technique) with the versamark ink and re-stamp over your base colour.
  4. Dust the silver embossing powder over the ink, lightly tapping of the excess.
  5. Heat with heat tool.
  6. Stamp the birds with Smoky Slate.
  7. Using the Delighful Dijon ink pad ink up the light beam image from the set. Stamp off onto a scratch piece of paper and then stamp the beam where wanted on your image. 
  8. Repeat this step above and below the first light beam image.
  9. Stamp your sentiment in black first, wiping the ink off with wipe where you want to replace with Delighful Dijon.
  10. Stamp again with delightful Dijon, wiping off excess from where it isn't needed.
  11. Now once again using the Delightful Dijon and the Sand image, dab the colour lightly around the outer edges and stamp. 
I thought this last step helped to add just a touch more of colour to the image and gave a lighted effect to the sand also.
