My card today is for four challenges
First is ColourQ with these colours,
second is Friday Mashup who want a
Beach project and/or masking technique
third is Less is More with SAND
and lastly, Addicted to Stamps where ANYTHING GOES
Here is my card
I started by stamping the two children in Archival Ink on white card, and covering them with Post It Notes. I stuck a Post It circle in the top where the sun will be, and with pieces of a scalloped circle for clouds, I sponged over the area with blue to make the sky (sorry it's
not clear in the photo). I sponged under some torn paper with yellow to make a sandy beach, and then drew a line in blue to make the sea. The scene was coloured with an Aqua Painter to make the colours go further, and laid on a grey Nestie on a lilac embossed card wrapped with white ribbon.
Card = Orchid Opulence, Grey, Naturals White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Summer by the Sea, Clarity birds, and Cute Companions sentiment
Inks = Black Archival, Pool Party, Orchid Opulence, and Summer Starfruit
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Swirl EF, and an Aqua Painter
Extras = Post It Notes, and Ribbon
I do enjoy making scenes by putting different stamps together, and there is something therapeutic about the sponging technique that gives a rewarding result. I hope you like it.
I'm off to see my Sisters today. Cassy is bringing Henry to Ali's house, and then we're all going to see Ali's new baby donkey. We had no idea that Lily the Pink ( donkey ) was even pregnant, so she surprised us all by producing a foal, now named Clover.
I'm in hospital again on Wednesday for more treatment so I may be AWOL for a while, but I'll be back soon
Thanks for dropping by
