|Seagull with stylised yacht in background|
To airbrush the yacht design onto the card, I found some pictures of yachts and made a stylised outline which I then cut out to make two masks. I used two masks so that the two sails would overlap as though the sun is shining through them. I used Eclipse paper from Judikins to make the masks. Working on a table outside, I sprayed Copic inks onto the card using about six colours. Each one is edged with either Krylon Red Shimmer, or blue Marvy Metallic pen.
The seagull piece is mounted on turquoise metallic card, and then on plain white card stock. Inside. the Greeting is gold embossed. I almost feel as though I have rediscovered gold embossing and the fascination of watching the letters shine as they melt and stand out on the card. There's a child in me that never tires of that magic. On the back of the card, I airbrushed a seahorse using a little brass stencil of sea creatures. I blocked off the other patterns with florist tape and placed a large 250 gsm mask over the whole stencil to make it easier and quicker to handle. It draws some attention to the "Made by" sticker.
