Life is good

Hello Everyone,

A couple of days passed without any news from me, I am sorry. Summer is mostly about the kids and spending time outside together. So definitely less time for blogging (I still craft a little every at just not as much as I want to). I am totally into summer cards now, I display them at our living room to add to the chilling mood.

This card was inspired by an ocean scene I saw on Pinterest. I wanted to make a card to capture the feels I had when I looked at that photo.

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged some distress inks using masking tape and a torn piece of printer paper. I made the sky, the ocean and the sand, flicked some water on the sand part along with different distress ink splatters to look more like sand. The ocean I misted with Tsukineko Shimmer mist for some sparkle.

I stamped a sentiment and some birds on the sky from Lawn Fawn Life is good set. I also added waves using the Marvy Snow marker and heated it up till it puffed. I gave the scene a dark brown mat and mounted it on a white card base.

The images from the So smooth Lawn Fawn set I stamped on marker friendly paper and coloured with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the scene using 3D foam squares. A bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glossy accents finished off the card.

I will link this project up to the Lawnfawnatics Summertime fun Challenge as well as to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Distress it.

I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspirational cards.

See you,

Zsofi

 

Sea you soon

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in with an ocean themed card, which was inspired by the current Lawnfanatics Challenge Watercolour.

I had a piece of a watercoloured background I made not so long ago using Gansai Tambi watercolours and cling foil. The technique is from the gorgeous Jennifer McGuire, the video tutorial is linked here. I added some Tsukineko Shimmer mist to it for more shine and gave it a black thin mat before gluing it on a white card base. I stamped the sentiment in black from the Mermaid for you set.

I stamped a couple of images from the Fintastic friends and Mermaid for you sets on Bristol smooth cardstock,  and coloured them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to blend the colours and give them a little sparkle.

After adhering them to the ocean background I embellished the scene with a little gemstone heart (I coloured it with Copics to have a matching colour) and a few clear droplets from Studio Katia.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfanatics Challenge #7 Watercolor and  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes too.

I hope you like my clean and simple card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration,

Sea you soon,
