I wanted to share with you a really summery card inspired by the Seven Hills Crafts monthly challenge.
I wanted to use my new goodies I received from SHC a week or so ago. I stamped and coloured with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers the MFT Beach babe image. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out.
Added some sparkle (Tonic Aqua shimmer pen) and shine (Glossy Accents), and used a black glaze pen on her eyes.
Then I worked on the background on a stitched rectangle cut from Bristol Smooth paper. The inspirational photo really made me try to make a pink sandy beach. I used Distress Oxide inks and masking tape. For the water I tore the masking tape for an uneven edge and made sure that there is a tiny white gap between the sandy beach and the sea to look more realistic. I used the MFT Waves stencil to add the waves.
For the sentiment I stamped Hello in black and adhered under it a die cut Sunshine. I cut it twice, once from white and once from pink glitter paper and layered them a bit offset for a shadow effect.
I popped up the girl with 3D foam squares and hand drew some birds in the background. And my card is finished. I really love the pink-teal look.
I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Bright and Cheerful too.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you soon again.
Have a lovely weekend,
