For Him and Her

Roxie here to show you an idea for a masculine card or for anyone that loves lighthouses.  This image colors up quickly and the sky could always be changed to sponging to make it even quicker and it goes well with the simple layout.  I hope I inspired you today!

Images: Just For Fun Rubber Stamps - Lighthouse

Coloring: Chameleon Pens: Lighthouse - CG8, RD4 and a white Sakura gel pen was used to add a bit of texture to the white, Grass - GR3, YG3, OL3, YL2,BR5, Sky - BL3, PK3, C8

Tools: Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat to cut the borders, Fleur DE Les and small triangles - Spellbinder border die

Accessories and other supplies: Enamel Dots - Eyelet Outlet and Brads,  Aleene's tacky glue to attach the die cuts, foam tape to pop up the image

Now a quick card for the ladies which may also pass for a masculine card.  I created the background by scribbling Copic markers in three shades starting with the darkest at the bottom.  Dropped on blending solution and I also used a hand squeeze airbrush to spritz on the solution to create smaller drops and then spritzed on yellow alcohol ink.

Once the ink and blender dried I stamped the panel with a background image in yellow but you have to look close to see the a bit of added texture.  This shows better in real life.
