I am popping in today with a very summery card, I made for the Heffy Doodle Summer Loving Challenge.
I had a little beach scene in mind for a week now, where the little mice from the Hello Squeakheart set can have a bit of water-fun. So I stamped and coloured the little critters with Copics, used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I altered the house a bit to look like a beach house and drew a rug and a ball free-hand.
Then I was working on the scene using Distress inks. I cut waves (Mama Elephant die), a palm tree, a sun and clouds (MFT) and masked off the sand and then the sky. I added some water splatters to the sea and went over them with a Tonic Shimmer pen to give it some sparkle. I also added some light and darker brown splatters to the sand to give it a more realistic look.
After assembling my scene, I added some extra leaves to the palm tree with 3D foam squares, some matte enamel dots to look like coconuts and some glossy accent to the roofs and hearts on the houses.
The sentiment is a simple black “hello” from the same stamp set. I also added a house and a little mouse inside the card.
I will also upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Use more than one stamp.
I hope you like my card and will pop in tomorrow. I have some pretty projects scheduled for you already.
