Darkroom Door - Surfboards Photo Stamp Gatefold card

Hi there everyone, Shaz here it's the 15th, halfway through month, so that means a Design Team post. 😊
Today I'm sharing a step by step card with Darkroom Door Surfboard Photo Stamp.
 Here is peek of my card... loved the result.
As I planned on water colouring part, stamped about four images in mixture of waterproof Archival inks, Jet Black, Sepia, Cobalt. Stamped one in Cobalt, which used for main image, others were in mixture of them swiped over the stamp. Used deep blue image on sky + sand background. Used mixture of *Distress Ink pads, on the sky and sea, Salty Ocean, Denim Blue, Stormy sky. On sand used Antique Linen, Mustard seed+ a little Vintage photo. (* added Distress inks in photo - right front, to piece of white laminated card to colour with which to colour)
Intended to 3D the Surfboards, mostly surfboards have some sort of colour on it, but there are quite a few neutral ones too.These were calling for colour 😊
Added cut out Surfboards, shaped them, then glued. Front two were added on top of first lot. Once glue was dry, added glossy accents to the Surfboards, they looked like the real thing then.
I really loved this image, it was so much fun to play with it. To finish the image I dusted it lightly around the edges with DI Vintage Photo, to age the edge of card which was stark white.
Stamped the Happy Birthday with Lawn Fawn stamp Set -  "So much to say" on cream card in Onyx Black Versafine Pigment ink pad, and clear embossed. Hand cut a greeting banner and backed in black card.
Embossed a sheet cream, similar to greeting banner, with a favourite folder for male cards, Sizzix Dot Matrix embossing folder. Smooched it with Distress ink Antique Linen, I use this colour a lot. Then took a snippet of turquoise and embossed it with large embossing folder.Assembled card.

Well, that's it for today... dont forget to join in Bec's Anything Goes January challenge .. you might win the prize :D

Love those Darkroom Door stamps! You can't go wrong with them!
The surfboards look so good against that very subtle, but realistic sea and sand background. The colouring techniques are super!
