seaside nights (by Veronica)

 Maybe I should have chosen to show you more cheerful cards, considering the horrible grey weather outside!
I love trying to capture night scenes, and here are 3 of my latest efforts for the Chocolate Baroque shows on Hochanda last month
The seaside scene is perfect for this, as it shows a lighthouse and a setting sun - couldn't be better!
I stamped it using black versafine ink onto white card, and coloured it with watercolour pencils and a water brush in greys, adding a touch of yellow and orange to the sun , clouds and sea.
The background uses the big ammonite stamp, stamped in grey ink randomly round the edges of the card blank, with the sentuiment added in black versafine.

The beach huts came next, stamped in black onto pale grey card, shading again with the pencils. I masked off the huts and used distress oxide inks sponged over the sky to create a sunset.
Sentiment stamped in versamark and whitye embossed onto a black card blank, then the beachhuts mounted above it.

Same method for the final card, apart from stamping onto black card, this time with clouds and a moon in the sky.

Thanks for supporting the DT blog, we love to read your comments There are more cheerful samples coming up the the rest of the team, so keep looking - we do try to show you something different!

  3. That background using the ammonite stamp shows off your lighthouse scene beautifully. Great idea to stamp onto darker card, love how you created the sunset.
