Waterfront Island Tutorial
I was asked to create a video tutorial for the Waterfront Island card in this post. As it happens, Mike is also working on videos, and I think he has the tripod for the video recorder (aka “my phone”). I do want to start making videos; that’s been on my to do list for too many years. But until I get the hardware I need, here’s a tutorial with lots of photos of the steps (and stamps) needed to create the card.
Stamp the mountain/island image three times in Fresh Fig Classic Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock. I stamped it one time on the left, then inked again and stamped farther to the right. Without re-inking a third time, I stamped in the middle.
Next, stamp the water in Pacific Point, using the larger filler stamp. I stamped with the flat side down first.
Whith the pointed side up, continue stamping the water.
Turn the stamp around again, and finish filling in the bottom of the cardstock.
Add depth to the water by stamping the z-image over the water. Use Island Indigo ink, and continue stamping until all the white areas are filled.
Use the splatter stamp to add sparkles to the water with Whisper White Craft Ink.
Fill in the sky with Soft Sky Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter. I squeezed a few drops of refill into the stamp case lid. Start at the horizon with the darkest color, then move up.
Let the card dry naturally, or use a heat tool to dry it quickly. Then stamp the birds from High Tide in the sky using Basic Gray Archival Ink. Add the stamped panel to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Island Indigo card base. Add a sentiment (opt.)
To view the supply list, see the original post. Note: The original post uses Whisper White Cardstock; in the tutorial, I used Shimmery White Cardstock. It’s a little easier to watercolor on Shimmery White.
