Two cards that just came together. This first card I have done this same background before and rally liked it. White embossed these surf boards randomly on the card base then blended distress inks to give the illusion of the sea. I don't know that these stamps I used a really surf boards I got them many many years ago as I wanted surf boards as my middle son lived for the surf. I think these came closest in look and I have always been happy to use them. This base is added to a white card base.
I decided to add this cute little turtle from a Stamping Bella stamp set. I have Copic coloured. He was amongst a pile I had cut with the Scan 'N' Cut previously. I love the look of the little critter on the edge of the card and have seen a lot of cards doing this lately and thought it was a great way to add a little extra character to the card.
I have added some sparkly crystal gems for a bit of bling which shows up better IRL and the 'Hello sunshine' sentiment from Stamplorations that I cut first in white funfoam and next in the silver mirror card.
This next card, well it really speaks for itself doesn't it!!!
Of course the first time I stamped the image then the sentiment I stamped the sentiment upside down and just stood there thinking yet lets get this bad day rolling. Next stamping worked out fine.
The colouring is simple very basic Copic colouring. Ive never seen a flamingo and looked it up and found so many differing colours I just decided to go with what I was comfortable with. Don't you just love this cutie from AI Art Impressions
Once I finished colouring I decided to cut out using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Deckle dies
Then to finish the card off I decided this pattern paper which has a wonderful glitter in the white lines was a perfect finish. Ohhh did I forget to say I added one of those wobble eyes to emphasise how my flamingo was feeling after hitting the ground.
Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
