Bonus Card Project - Paula Whittaker

We hope you enjoyed Paula Whittaker's project in the July issue of the magazine? I always love her projects and was particular taken with these as I do have a secret desire to live by the sea. Paula's home decor pieces would make a wonderful gift for someone who is moving into a new home - why not make this lovely matching card too?

Lighthouse Card By Paula Whittaker
For this card, I’ve gone down the clean and simple route which I think gives it a graphic look but still with a beachside feel. Stamp the lighthouse with black StazOn straight onto a card blank. Stamp it again onto scrap paper, trim out closely and use this as a mask over your original image. Take the ink spray and spritz over to one side of the piece, as shown, and dab dry with a paper towel. Stencil the stripe border using a piece of Cut-n-Dry Foam and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Using Black Soot Distress Ink, stencil the numbers and words. Finally, add some rub-on wording to complete the card.
