Sympathy Card

Sometimes you need to make a sympathy card
to say goodbye to a loved person.
This time it is for someone from our boatclub,
so I choose to use the Lighthouse set from Stampin Up!
In the background you see also other SU! stamps:
the big background stamp called Cheesecloth
and a stamp from The Open Sea set.

The Dutch sentiment means: with sympathy.

I stamped the with brown ink to give the card a little vintage
atmosphere and only used a little color with pencil.
The flag on top of the lighthouse are the colors of our
boatclub. The sunrays in the back is done with the
ATC-size cuttlebug folder from Tim Holtz Aterations
and I colored it with mustered seed distress ink.

On the seagull I added a drop of glossy accent.

Have a creative day!

Resist technique

Vandaag heb ik een klein lesje voor jullie.
Een van de vele - maar wel so makkelijke - resist technieken.
Voor deze heb je nodig:
clear embossing poeder
een clear embossing inktkussen
en distress inkt of stain
keukenpapier of babydoekje
ja....en natuurlijk papier en stemples!

Today I have a little tutorial for you.
One of the many - but easy - resist techniques.
This is what you need:
clear embossing powder
clear emboss inkpad
distress ink or stain
paper towel or baby wipe
yes and of course your papers and stamps.
1. stempel met clear embossing inkt op je papier
en emboss dit met clear embossing poeder.

1. stamp with clear embossing ink on your paper
and sprinkle clear embossing powder on top and
use your heat gun.

2. Bedek nu je kaart met inkt naar keuze.
Wil je van die leuke stipjes er op spuit dan nog even met
wat water. Als alles droog is veeg je met papier
of een babydoekje de geembosde plekken weer schoon.
Nu heb je een prachtige achtergrond voor een tag of kaart.

2. Cover your card with your choice of ink.
Do you like to get those spots, spritz with water.
When everything is dry, vlean the card with paper towel
or baby wipe to get the ink of the embossed areas.
Now you have a wonderful background for a card
or a tag.
