Bombshell Tutorial Challenge

As a special edition challenge, this one was very fun. We were challenged to select one of the tutorials from Bombshell Stamps Fabulous Friday and incorporate it into one of our cards. I chose to go Toling ala Torrey.

I chose Homeward Bound for this card. I colored up my image with Copics (DUH). The colors used are below. But there are two things different about this card. I partially toled it. Is that a word?

OK... so I did that, and then I also have the image on the inside of the card with a window open to the inside.

I used E6000 to layer up the boat, sails and water. I have the entire boar (minus the ropes) as the 2nd layer of the card. Then I have the top main sails and boat as the third layer. The front sales and the water are the fourth layer.

I cut a Nestie out of black and layered it on top of the image and stuck it down with foam tape. Then I layered that on the right side of my base cardstock. I rand two different creases on the left side of the black cardstock where I wanted the base cardstock to fold over.  I then added tape to the non cutting side of the next size up Nestie I placed it where I wanted it, so it would be centered over the black layer. with the tape facing up. I then closed the card and it stuck to the inside of the green/ blue layer. I cut it out. Now when the card closes the opening fell right on top of the black opening on the inside of the card.  :D

OK so the colors I used are E50, 51, 53 for the sails, Y00, 21, 23 for the sun, BG70, 72, 75 for the water, Y11, 23, 26 for the gold on the boat, and E33, 35, 37 for the wood. The clouds are B60, and the sky is B91.

So, if you arrived here not from Bombshell Stamps blog - then I really hope that you head over and check out the blog today. And maybe join in with us for a chance to win a Bombshell Stamp Set.
