Lately, I’ve been not crafting nor blogging as much as I wanted. In fact these days I’m at my dad’s house because he had hip replacement surgery and although he is recovering very well he needs some help. I’ve brought some stamps and color pencils and I hope to have some time to color something! Anyways, I have a card to share with you featuring Hello Bluebird “Seaside Girls” stamps and dies. I know it’s officially fall but we are having some lovely sunny days and (sometimes) September is still summer in Basque Country. Plus I really wanted to use these sweet girls!!
I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink. Then, I colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die cut them using coordinating dies. I also added some highlights and details with a white gel pen.
I made a very simple background because I didn’t want to distract the attention from the girls. I used Lawn Fawn “Stitched Oval Stackables” dies on Bristol cardstock and then blended Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand, Tumbled Glass for the sea and Tattered Rose for the sky. Then, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. I also stamped the seagulls using Mama Elephant Winter ink.
I glued the images to the panel and then I adhered the panel to the top of another oval piece to make the card. I wanted to frame the scene, so I die cut an oval one nesting two oval dies. I used a blue alcohol marker to color the frame and glued it to the background panel.
I love how this turned out. I really enjoyed coloring the girls!
Thanks for stopping by!! Have an awesome day!
