Hi! I'm here with a card made for a few challenges. It's been months since I made a card for something other than DT work and it felt good. I've had the week off work and today spent some time with a friend teaching her how to make a card. After she left, I made this card using some new goodies which just arrived.
Friday, 18 June 2021
The challenges I'm entering are the colour challenge at The Paper Players, the Just Add Two challenge at Just Add Ink, Addicted to CAS (Beach) and the Tic Tac Toe challenge (Any Colour, Free, CAS).
I just received this stamp set with the sunglasses and as these are the shape of shades that my daughter wears, I thought they'd make a great card for her. In order to get the challenge colours in, I chose the beach scene image and stamped it inside the specs before colouring with Copics. I hope it's okay with The Paper Players crew that I used some light browns for sand? Once coloured, I added some white gel pen to mimic the waves and foam on the beach. I finished off the scene by colouring the water with clear sparkle pen.
Just Add Ink are looking for two of Stitching, Stripes and/or Paper Strips. I used all three as the patterned paper strips are die-cut with a stitched die.
The card base was embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder (I can't seem to stop using that thing - mine actually broke in two and is now held together with purple tape!)
Thanks for visiting! It felt good to stamp just for the fun of it instead of for DT cards.
