Seaside Fun

Today's card features some of the beautiful seaside stamps from Creative Expressions ("Treasure Seeker", "Sandcastle in the Sun" and "Beauty and the Beach"). I coloured in the children and the bunting using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints Set 3 (Brights). For the skin I used Cosmic Shimmer Matt Skin Tones Drawings Inks.

I coloured the sandcastle and sand using Scattered Straw Distress Ink and a water brush.

I used the Scattered Straw Ink Pad again, with Broken China Distress Ink, to blend around the edges of the image. 

The bunting was made using the Spellbinder Die Set called Banner Basic One.

The sentiment was die cut using the JustRite Die Set Antique Tags One.

The "sunglasses" are a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 embellishment ("Reading Glasses") which I painted using Cosmic Shimmer Blueberry Crush Shimmer Paint.

The card base was made into an easel card using teal card. The spearmint coloured panel on the base was embossed using the Spellbinder M-Bossabilities folder called Mystic.

I finished the card off with a few self-adhesive pearls.

Happy crafting!
