I decided to stick with the beach theme and use the gorgeous Beach Dasy Bundle from the new Mini Catalogue, Page 58. The images in this bundle are so lovely and the dies are perfect.
I chose a BAsic White card base as I felt it showed all the colours well. The card front layer is also Basic White. I started by shading some Petal Pink at the base using a Blending Brush. Then used some masking tape to mark the horizon and blended Pool Party ink to the masking paper. I blended the Blueberry Bushel for the sky and was careful to create different depths of the colour to create the sky.
I stamped the birthday sentiment in the Petal Pink blended area so it sort of looks like it is wrttten in the sand. I stamped the birds in the sky in Blueberry Bushel ink then coloured with Blueberry Bushel stamping blends.
I die cut the palm tree in Crumb cake for the trunk and Pool Party for the palms. I used some Pool Party ink with blending brushes on the palms to give them some dimension. I then adhered to the left hand side of the card front using Dimensionals.
The lifesaver Hut is cut out of Basic White card stock. I hand cut a backing piece to fit behingd the windows and used Blueberry Bushel blended ink to shade the windows before gluing to the back of the Hut. The Hut was adhered to the card front using Dimensionals and Glue for the base and board walk.
The surfboard was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink then coloured with Fresh Freesia stampin' blends berfore being die cut and adhered to the front of the Hut using Dimensionals.
I enjoyed making this card as it is fun and different for me to create the background layer. I look forwaard to more creativity with this bundle.
Have a great week and Happy New Year!
