Lost at the Lake card by Jennifer Jackson

Lost at the Lake card by Jennifer Jackson | Winston's Lake House Stamp Set & Waves Stencil by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Lost at the Lake!

Today I'm sharing a card I created using our NEW Winston's Lake House Stamp Set and Waves Stencil. These two new products go so perfectly together!  For this card I started out with the Waves Stencil and some white embossing paste. I added some color to the paste by squishing a little ink from a distress ink pad onto my craft sheet and then spreading a bit of the paste over it and mixing it up with a palette knife! Then I spread  the blue paste over  the stencil on a white card panel, leaving the top third white, and let it dry.

I used the image of Winston paddling in a canoe with his doggie friend from the NEW Winston's Lake House Stamp Set. I stamped this image onto watercolor paper with Archival Black ink and colored it using Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. Then I used the coordinating Winston's Lake House Die Set to cut it out. I didn't line it up perfectly (you can tell it's a little too crooked since there isn't white around the dogs head) but since I had spent all the time coloring it I decided it was OK and used it anyway!


I thought about adding the image to the card with just white on the top but I decided it needed more color so I used a couple of Distress Oxide inks to make a orange to yellow sky. I like how it looks like they are boating at sunset! Then I added a spritz of water to give a little texture and then stamped the "I'd Rather be lost at the lake than found at home" sentiment, also from the Winston's Lake House Stamp Set.
