Relax

February 8, 2019

Today I am sharing a card with you that is a result of my first play with the Beach Happy stamp set.  I bought this set because I think it will co-ordinate with several others that I already own, however, this is the first time it has seen ink, but hopefully not the last.  I have a friend who just retired and I wanted to create a card for her.  I stamped the palm tree stems in Soft Suede ink and added the leaves in Old Olive ink onto Shimmer Paper.  I stamped the beach chair and umbrella using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The striped image to fill the chair is stamped in Real Red ink and the fill image for the umbrella is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.  I punched a Post-It-Note with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and added it to the card front.  I used Crumb Cake ink and an Aqua Painter to create a sandy beach.  I used the Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay ink to create the sea.  The sky is added using an Aqua Painter and Coastal Cabana ink.  I removed the Post-It-Note and using the Aqua Painter filled the area with Daffodil Delight ink.  Lastly I added the greeting from the Beach Happy stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   The panel is attached to scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card.

Now I think my painter’s eye was a little off and maybe the sea should not be quite so “downhill”, however, I am happy with the overall effect.  Adding the colour around the images, makes the image maybe not so perfect, but is slightly more realistic (in my humble opinion).

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the palm tree stem three times using Soft Suede ink and added the leaves using Old Olive ink.

I’d really love to hear what you think of this card.

Bye for now,

Kris
