Dixie Belle Card

I rarely if ever use store bought cards and my sweet husband will ask me to make a card on occasions that he needs to give one. This week was one of those occasions.  He doesn't like the flowery girly cards, when he gives one it must be a masculine card!!!

 Today with my Dixie Belle Paints I created this beauty!

Altered Pages Lighthouses Collage Sheet
Card Base
Two Scoops = Brown Cardstock

On Card Base lightly paint with Dixie Belle Van Dyke Brown Glaze, let dry. 

On the Corrugated Cardboard add some Dixie Belle Swamp Mud Texture Medium - White to create a beach, let dry!!
Over the Dixie Belle Swamp Mud Texture Medium add a little Dixie Belle Van Dyke Brown Glaze to create a little beach, let dry.   Use Tacky Glue to attach burlap off side.
Attach the  Altered Pages Lighthouses Collage Sheet with Glue  Stick to a piece of brown cardstock.  Tie some burlap twine around the mounted image.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
