Ocean Scene ODBDSLC111

I made this card for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge, something old, something new, something borrowed or gifted, and something blue.

The old on this card is is the background paper, which is some really old paper I bought years ago. It reminds me of blue clouds on white. The new is the stamp, this is the first time I have used it, and also the die cut and darker blue paper. Something borrowed or gifted is the glue stick I used to hold it together, I borrowed it from my mother, but the stamp could also be considered gifted, since I won it in an ODBD blog hop. Also, my mother bought me the dimensional tape I used to mount the stamp and verse for Christmas, so that was gifted as well. I guess the blue is obvious, since there is a lot of it in my card. Oh yes, my mother bought me the blue Copics for my birthday as well, so those are gifted too!

For this card, I used ODBD's The Mighty Sea. I stamped it with VersaFine ink, and colored it with Copic Markers. For some reason one of the browns in the rocks looks orange in the photo. I'm really happy with the way the rocks in the water look in person. (There really isn't a big orange spot on one of them like it looks in the photo. I wanted them to look wet, and I still don't have any gray Copics, so I colored them with blues first, then went over them with colorless blender a few times. It turned them into more of a bluish gray. Then I colored them with the same middle brown marker as the rocks on the shore. The shading came from the blues I had applied previously, and the brown coloring came out so smoothly blended and shaded with a touch of the same blue as in the water. The rocks on the shore are much closer to the same color as the ones in the water in real life. There is also no orange in any of them. No matter which camera I use, it seems like when photographing cards, nothing is the right color. Mostly it is the red and brown shades I have problems with.

I have no idea of the brand of the white with blue clouds paper, it is at least six years old. The plain blue is Core'dinations, and the white is generic. The die cut shell is K&Co, and the pearls are Queen and Co.

Wow, your coloring of those images is awesome! I had to look closely to see if they were cut from a magazine or wallpaper or something--they are just so perfect! A lovely card.

By the way, thanks for your nice comments on my blog. You should do some more pysanky, and put them up here. We'd love to see them!
