Sunburst Rays for the High Tide Lighthouse Card

 

High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty BennettDo you remember these High Tide Lighthouse cards I blogged a couple weeks ago?

Well, I just realized that I had a series of photos I forgot to share with you explaining how I made the vellum "light rays" at the top of the lighthouse!! 

When I was sharing this idea with Cindee last week, she made THIS CARD, and it reminded me that I forgot to share this info with you, so, today I'm sharing the details for die cutting the vellum with the Sunburst die and coloring it with sponges to give the effect of light coming from the top of the lighthouse.

 

Tutorial for creating light rays for the High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty Bennett

STEP 1 (above): Die cut a piece of Cardstock Vellum using the Sunburst Thinlit die

  • Sunburst thinlit die, pg 193 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #140617
  • Vellum cardstock, pg 175 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, #101856

 

STEP 2 (below):  Use a Stampin' Sponge and your choice of ink color to color the die cut "rays" of vellum.  I used Daffodil Delight ink

  • Stampin' Sponge, #141337

STEP 4 (below): Attach the light rays to the card with glue dots.  I tucked the ray under the Island Indigo layer of cardstock on my finished card.

Love the idea but I think I will ink the entire piece of vellum before cutting just to save a bit of time.
