I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but right now, it’s terribly hot here in Germany and most of Europe. I’m not a fan of hot. I prefer snow, rain, and every other kind of weather that does not make me sweat. Except for when I’m at the beach. When I think of beach, I think of peace and quiet and the sound of water lapping at the shore… Needless to say, the card I created with some of the new Purple Onion Designs stamps takes me right to my dream beach…
￼I started out by stamping the images with MFT Hybrid ink on SSS card stock and coloring them with my Copic markers. I did some easy shading, simply going from dark to light, nothing fancy. And I picked some weird colors … don’t you feel like those beach umbrellas and chairs always the most horrible colors and patterns? You’d never find them nice anywhere else, but on the beach, they are perfect 🙂
I’ve had my Brother Scan ’n Cut cut those images out for me and added some white details on the umbrella. I used Distress Ink for the background and then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it. My Stardust gel pen added some sparkly dots and then the card was done!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
