The current Cupcake Inspirations Challenge is a themed one, and we’re looking for nautical projects! Nautical means relating to ships, sailors or navigation, so make sure your projects relate to that and not just a general beach/sea theme. I’m still keeping very busy with lots of projects and wanted to make a quick card again for this reminder post, and here’s what I came up with.
With the card base still in my MISTI I linked up the waves stamp from Lovable Legends. I stamped it with Altenew Dusk ink, shifted the card base up slightly and stamped again with the same ink. I then shifted up again and repeated the process with two lines of Deep Iris and finally two lines of Midnight Violet.
Having finished my stamping I removed the card from the MISTI, and took the mask off of my boat. I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers to colour the boat. I went for browns for the wooden areas of the boat, then used orange and yellow for the sails.
As a final touch I added a couple of trios of Limoncello Nuvo Drops plus added them onto the portholes of the boat.
I hope this inspires you to come and join in with our Nautical challenge. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the team in our launch post, reminder post, or directly on their blogs via the links below. Plus, our next challenge will be our 500th and we’ll be having a big celebration, so make sure not to miss that!
