Tropical Cove

Yes!!  I've now got the perfect image for those difficult male cards - birthdays, retirement, get well, thinking of you ... this stamp does it all and this card was such a doddle to make!

I started off by inking a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock (I like to ink before I stamp and emboss).  I lay the stamp next to the panel face up whilst I was inking to try and apply the colours where I wanted them to go.  I started with Antique Linen, blended in with Cracked Pistachio then finised off with Chipped Sapphire (all Oxides).

Once this was dry I heat embossed the Tropical Cove stamp with white embossing powder, trimmed the image to fit and mounted this on to a panel of black card then finished off with a sentiment from the Everyday Banner Digi Sentiments and a nautical charm which I attached with a piece of twine.


  1. Perfect guy card! And you're right...that is a really versatile image, perfect for so many occasions.

  2. Beautiful card I love the design Love and hugs Carole x
