Distress Oxide Blended Sunset Lighthouse Card | Spellbinders build a Summer Birdhouse Dies

Hello and thank you for stopping by today I have this beautiful sunset card featuring a die set by Spellbinders, So let's jump in.

For this card I start by using a stitched rectangle die for my panel, I then blended my water colours which were Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagood and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxides. I masked off my water then blended my sunset which is Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door Distress Oxide. I brought in a stencil and some perfect pearls to add some depth and texture to my background.

I then ran the build a summer birdhouse dies through my die cutting machine and coloured them with copic markers I used E43, E44 and E47 on my bids house and the post holding it up and N1, N3 and V04 on the shells and birds for a little shadowing. I adhered everything together and to my card base with some Beary art glue, and brought it a white gel pen for some added highlights.For some final touches I white heat embossed a sentiment and added a couple of gems to the shells and top of the light house. I had a blast creating this card and I hope you enjoyed checking it out.

If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made this card please check out the step by step video below, I also have a full supplies list below the video if you would like to know exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again!!
