Waterfront Set perfect for Masculine Birthday in fact it is the card I made for my son in law whose Birthday was this month. He likes to go out to go hunting and that is what inspired me to use Waterfront Stamp Set to create this card for him!
I found that just stamping the pieces was kinda simple looking (I am sure it is how I was stamping them!) but I grabbed my Aquapainter and colored over the stamped images and loved the results! You can make some more bold, have shadows and yet keep some lighter!
Don’t like how one mountain looks? Stamp another one over it! Very forgiving stamp set and really a lot of fun to be creative with.
It is very hard to describe how to stamp this card but I will do my best! I have labeled the photo of the stamp set to help you identify the pieces I am using and what I call them!
Waterfront Set perfect for Masculine Birthday Instructions:
First I stamped the mountains with Crumb Cake across the Shimmery White cardstock (5″ x 3 3/4″). I stamped over a few. Then as mentioned before I used my Aqua Painter and colored over a few of the mountains.
The grass was used with the land and water ripples stamps and Old Olive Ink. Just stamp and fill in where you need to. Once you start stamping you will understand. There will be white spots and I just went back and filled in with these two stamps as needed! I even overlapped the mountains in the process.
I moved down to the water and used the waterfall stamp and inked up with Pacific Point Ink and did the same process, stamping and filling it in.
Dapper Denim was used with the Water Ripples stamp, then I took my Aqua Painter and blended as I felt it needed.
Let all of the images dry completely before you stamp the trees in Always Artichoke. I even extended the tress to make them taller by stamping one on top and another right underneath! Really love how forgiving these stamps are!
Stamp the sun with Daffodil Delight just above the mountain top
Adhere the Shimmery White layer to 4″ x 5 1/4″ Soft Suede layer with Snail, add both layers to Pacific Point card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ with snail
