All a-boat you
Ready for a rocky boat trip? We are starting a new challenge at The Male Room today and our theme this time is "Use die cuts". When I sat down to make a card for this challenge I looked up at my peg board in front of my craft table and I discovered these cute layered die cuts that I bought at Søstrene Grene and my mind imidiately started to create a scene and I wanted my boats to move.
So I started by creating my background using oxide inks in the colors Tumbled glass, Salty ocean and Faded jeans. I stamped the layered ocean using stamps from the June 2018 MMH kit. I also used a white gel pen to create some highlights on the sea.
I then ink blended a piece of cardstock using oxide inks in the colors mowed lawn and peeled paint and used a Lawn Fawn grass die to die cut my grass. and glued it to the bottom. I then found my trusted Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to die cut my card panel.
I found a couple of Lawn Fawn "slide on over" path dies and cut the paths for my boats to move onand glued the inside pieces of dies to a layer of cardstock directly underneith.
I needed a few other elements on my cards so I stamped a few birds in the sky and a light house on copic friendly paper. Bothe the birds and the light house came from the "Smooth sailing" stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I free hand drew a rocky islet for the light house to stand on.
I colored the light house using copic markers in the following colors: R69, R29, R27, Y11, Y13, Y15, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1 and 0. I used a white gel pen for highlights. I fussy cut the light house and glued it to the card panel.
To finish the card I glued my boats to tiny coins on the backside to make them slide well across the water and I also stamped the sentiment, also from teh "Smooth sailing" stamp set and cut the sentiment strip to size using a Hero Arts die.
I hope you will dig out your die cutting machines or your bought embellishments featuring cool die cuts to make lots of male die cut projects at The Male Room.
