So after 3 very quiet days, the boys are back home and my peace is shattered! I have missed them, of course, but it has been lovely to have lots of time to play in the craft room.
Today's card is perfect for the wonderful weather we are having at the moment and sees me using lots of products I've had for a while but never used.
I began by stamping a Crafters Companion Verity Rose Sunbeam stamp on to Neenah card using Memento ink. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin FS2 FS3 FS4 CR2
Clothes BT1 BT2 BT4 CT1 CT2 CT4 CR7 CR8 DR1
Hair and shell TN1 EB1 EB2
I used Trimcraft First Edition Sail Away papers, backed onto Kraft card, and edged with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. I added a little twine to add to the seaside feel.
I used First Edition Beach dies to cut a starfish and shells. I coloured the starfish with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker in Sand Dune. I wanted to try to achieve a shell texture for the shells so painted them using Liquid Pearls in Bronze and a wet paint brush. This gave a lovely sheen.
The sentiment stamp is from the Verity Rose set and has been stamped using Versafine ink. I think it's a great sentiment although I actually hate flip flops!
