My first card is a bright and cheerful number. I started by inking the background TH Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade. Then I fashioned the border by repeat stamping around the card with TH Rusty Hinge. Next I stamped the feathery backdrop with TH Salty Ocean. The end result is an image in turquoise green - perfect for the fussy cut peacock from the Indian Textiles A5 sheet. I stamped the bird with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Promarkers. The greeting is from Birthday Words A5 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx.
On the inside is another sentiment from the from Birthday Words A5 sheet.
My second project is all about the tranquil blue waters. Here I'm using a stamp from the Harlequin Fragments A4 sheet to create bubbles and foam by stamping first in blue using VersaMagic Sea Breeze and again in white using VersaMagic Cloud White .
The supporting cast - clouds and gulls - are from Seashore Scenes A5 sheet and Seashell Collage A5 sheet respectively. I coloured the birds and wood stumps using Graph'It alcohol markers: 9400, 9401, 9402, 3160, 3180, 3245, 3250. That lovely sentiment is from Words Of Comfort And Cheer A4 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Smokey Grey.
Here's the inside ... all stamped with VersaFine Smokey Grey.
My final project for today is an easy peasy birthday card, created with the help of the pile of fussy cut pressies from A Gift Of Christmas A4 sheet. First I prepared the background with warm pink in warm pink by blending TH Distress Inks Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose. Next I stamped the harlequin stamp from Harlequin Fragments A4 sheet with TH Crushed Velvet. Then I coloured the presents with Graph'It alcohol markers and adhered it to the background. The sentiments is from Birthday Words A5 sheet, stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx.
On the inside - another go at the Birthday Words A5 sheet and VersaFine Black Onyx.
