TRUE NORTH

I was a bit stumped as to what to create, to be honest. Then, I decided to share what some of our wonderful country looks like! Where I live, our tourism logo is “Super, Natural, British Columbia”.  Our boast is that you can snow ski in the morning, and surf in the afternoon. At the right time of year – or if you have a helicopter!

I combined two of my favourites – a Penny Black stamp, and Ranger Alcohol Inks for my project.

CARD DETAILS

First,start with a panel of Yupo. Stamp the mountains image from the Penny Black Season’s Marvel set in Archival ink across the middle of the panel. Yupo is non-porous, but the Archival ink is safe to use. Next, create the water across the bottom third of the panel. I combined Stream with Cloudy Blue alcohol ink, along with Blending Solution. For the textures in the water, a combination of a small brush, and a toothbrush dipped in 99% isopropyl alcohol are used.

While the water area dries, move onto the creating the sky. This could be a sunrise, or sunset. Use a small brush to apply Ember, Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow. Add the Blending Solution to get it to flow, and add textures to the sky.  Create the sun by using the Alcohol Ink Blending Pen to lift the ink, creating a circle.

Between the mountains and the water, add Meadow and Willow inks. Blend on with some Blending Solution.

Now, stamp the flying geese image from the same Season’s Marvel stamp set in Archival gray ink, above the mountains.  For the sentiment, I didn’t have one that I wanted. So I created my own! I simply created the sentiments in my Word program, and printed them out onto gray cardstock.

FINISH THE CARD

To finish off the card, I cut 2 rectangles of light orange cardstock and glued them to the upper left and bottom right of a gray card base. Next, I added my Yupo card front with foam tape. The sentiments were cut into strips, and added with foam squares.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

  1. Originally coming from the prairies I think there is nothing more beautiful than the Rocky Mountains! You truly have captured there beauty in this card! (Great minds think alike!) Lol!

  2. Your card is beautiful, and depicts a view that anyone would love!!! Canada is a great place to be. Our claim to fame….at the right time of year, you can sled, golf and waterski all in one day. Could life get any better? Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is such a beauty Deb and I don’t think anything depicts BC any better than the mountains. I used to work in Downtown Vancouver and lived on the North Shore. When driving home into the mountains, it never got old.

  4. Gorgeous card! You have definitely captured the spirit of the True North. I live on Vancouver Island so this is an everyday view here too. How lucky are we?? 🙂

  6. That is stunningly gorgeous. I so appreciate you describing how you did this card; I forgot how to combine alcohol ink & stamps.

    1. Thanks so much, Tania! I’m glad that you found the how-to helpful. Alcohol inks are such fun, aren’t they?! 🙂
