My first photo tutorial

Just like I promised in my last post.  I have taken some step by step photos of the card that we made in last weeks card club that had that cute pilgrim boat with it's shadow coming off the water.   Just click on the post title and it will take you right to it on my blog.  I'll also be posting some of the scrapbook pages that I just finished from my 2008 photos.  Yes, I am so behind on my scrapbooking but I've been trying to work on it whenever I find the time.

White cardstock base is cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4 and your tan cardstock cut at 4x5 1/4

Using my Creative memories wave cutter, I used the outside wave and lined it up on the left side to make a slight ocean wave on a light blue piece of cardstock measureing at 4x2 1/2
Line up your boat (from the paper dolls cricut cartridge/pilgrim) and fold the boat forward so you can ink in your shadow.
I cut 2 boats so that I could use 1 to ink with and 1 for the card.  I did this because my dimensionals had a hard time sticking to the inked side of the boat.
I just used a color a little darker then my paper
I then used an exacto knife to scrape up the edges of the tan paper
I used Ranger's Distress ink in walnut to distress the scrapped up edges and finished up the card with some clouds, a birthday sentiment and popped up my boat on dimensionals.
I hope this was easy to follow.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.  Have a great day!
