Hello, it’s Gaylynn here with a handmade nautical card project from the January 2018 SMAK Kit called The Ocean is Calling.
Being that I am a Floridian, it delights me to see new tropical stamps, especially when they can be used in different mediums and for different occasions. I like that these work perfectly for scrapbook, mixed media, altered art, journaling and card making projects, not to mention for both feminine and masculine themes.
Here is the SMAK kit for January 2018. To learn more about this monthly membership subscription, visit SMAK.
For my card, I layered the net and the ship wheel stamping onto watercolor paper. Then I used a technique called ink smooshing to watercolor the image panel. I made a quick tip video tutorial for this ink smooshing process here.
To finish the card, I added a die-cut panel with one of the kit’s lovely sentiments, “Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction.” Here is a closer look at the this watercolor card.
I hope you enjoyed this project and tutorial. Have a lovely day.
