Moon Lake Canoe Thinking of You

I love this classic stamp from Stampin' Up called Moonlake. It has some really great images. For this card I used the water scene with a canoe and tree. It makes a pretty card.


I stamped the image onto some Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass cardstock with Memento Toffee Crunch Ink and then ink blended the land, water, and sky with Distress Oxide Inks. I used 1" Post-it Tape to mark of each section. Copic Markers were used to add details to the image.


A stitched rectangle die was used to cut down the image. When I went to place it on an ivory card base I didn't like the way it looked. So, I decided to cut a Hero Arts Wood Frame from ivory cardstock and color it with the same brown inks used on the canoe. Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape was cut in half and added to the back of the frame. The focal image was then adhered in place by removing the backing paper on the foam. I liked this much better.


There was a lot of blank space on the right of the image and I thought it would look good to have a sun rising from the horizon, but the cardstock was blue and ink blended yellow for the sun would only make green. So a circle of typing paper was cut and colored by ink blending several yellow Distress Oxide Inks. It was cut down to be a little less than half a circle and then adhered in place with dotliner adhesive.


The sentiment was stamped with black ink at the bottom of the image and the card was done.
