Light House Vertical Z-Fold Card


This is a typical Z-fold card -- but the usual orientation is horizontal.  I turned it vertical.  Cut your base card stock at 11inches by 4 1/4 inches.   Score at 5 1/2 inches and 2 3/4 inches.  The measurements are the same  whether the orientation  is horizontal or vertical.  This is a Z-fold card I did on April 4, 2020

For today's card I used several Technique Junkie's stamps:  Wildflower Silhouettes from the April 2021 Release,  Vintage Lighthouse, and a verse from Mae West Sentiments. 

I used a 3 x5 sticky note to form the horizon line.  Then I applied  several shades of blues, a light green and a light purple to create the water.  To create the sky I punched a circle from 2 pieces of sticky notes neat the sticky part.  I placed the hole  a short distance away from the  horizon line and using a sponge dauber I colored in the sun, and then added a lighter reflection in the water.  Next I colored the sun with the punched out circle.  The I used the 3x5 sticky note and covered the water leaving the sky a blank canvas.  Then I used the Cloud Edger stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.    I used a variety of ink colors with an ink blending brush,   Then I used a sponge with darker blue  around the edges to try and imitate a night time sunset.  

The flowers and the verse were heat embossed with clear embossing powder over black pigment ink.
