It’s Zsofi here, welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. As Father’s Day is on the corner, I wanted to show you a fun design to celebrate the daddies. I used stamps and dies from the latest release, let me guide you through the process.
First I created a cute boat using the Boats and Barns die set. I used Heffy Doodle cardstock and shaded the pieces a little with some Distress Oxide ink blending. I assembled it and used the Classic Sentiments to stamp the main message on the boat itself.
Then I created the background: I inkblended a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and use the Simple Sunburst stencil with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink to add the sunrays. Before removing the stencil I have spritzed the panel with Avery Elle Shimmer spritz for a subtle sparkle.
I also die cut a scrap piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with a Breaking Waves banner die and used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide to give it some colour. I added some water and diluted ink splatters for a textured look.
It would have looked gorgeous on its own, but I wanted some cute passengers on this boat. So I stamped and coloured 3 funny seagulls from the You go, gull stamp set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The list of colours I used are: OR3, BO1, OR05, BG6, BG3, BG1, BG05. I die cut them with their coordinating dies and assembled the card.
As a finishing touch I added another sentiment above the seagull captain, used a black glaze pen on their eyes and added glossy accents to their beaks.
See you soon,
