Today I’m sharing a Father’s Day card that I made using Come Sail Away (KLM Digital Designs). It comes with multiple sentiments, but I decided to choose the sentiment from Father Gnome and Kids & Sentiments (KLM Digital Designs). You could also use this image to make a Special birthday card, Bon Voyage or Inspirational card too!
For this card, I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. I used Copic markers to colour in the image. For the water, I used a variety of markers and created the movement of the water by just wisping them over the paper very gently. Then I added in some white caps using Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point. I did this by just dabbing the paper with tight dots of ink.
For the sand and sky, I used a special technique that I saw on-line, using a Q-Tip and Colorless blender Re-Inker to wet my background and then adding in the colours also using a Q-Tip and Copic Re-inkers. This was the first time I ever tried this and I just love how it turned out.
After the image was coloured in, I went around the edges of both the card and the image with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint. Then I mounted the image on top of the background on a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
