Hi everyone! I've got some exciting news to share with you today. FINALLY!! I've been keeping this to myself forever it seems! :-). I'm very happy to announce that I am now a part of the STAMPlorations Inspiration Design Team! Every month the team participates in the CASEplorations challenge by CASEing an amazing card artist and then throughout the month we post inspiration cards to get your mojo going. I'll be posting my first official card on Monday. Hope you'll all check it out. :-)
I have a card to share today that really makes me long for the beach. Take a look...
First, I took my light beige cardstock and splattered watered down walnut stain and tea dye Distress inks as well as watered down Memento black ink and white acrylic paint, over the entire surface. Then I lightly spritzed some Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold mist. This created a sandy look. Then I stamped my pail and shovel (STAMPlorations) in walnut stain Distress ink and coloured it in with pencil crayons. The shovel I painted (carefully and with a very small paintbrush) using white acrylic paint. It showed up better than the pencil crayon. I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in walnut stain ink as well. I really need a trip to a lovely beach now. :-)
Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit and hope you have a fantastic weekend!
I'd like to link up to the following challenges:
- Create a Clean And Simple (yes, it has to be CAS) project using Tan, White and one bright color.
Fusion Card Challenge
- I just used the inspiration photo. The starfish made me think of the beach and tried to replicate the colour of the board in my pail.
Addicted to Stamps and More
- "make your mark".
