How you all doin’? I hope everyone is ok.
For me, I can now see through both eyes without thinking I am looking through a slot machine. I am not sure whether they were insect bites or styes but my eyes swelled up and I looked like I had done a round with Joe Bugner. I knew, in my last post, I shouldn’t have said everything will be back to normal soon. It’s always fatal.
I have to tell you. I came back from shopping this morning and found 6 little piggies in the garden. I had left the gate open and they ran in from over the road. They were so funny! It wasn’t until this evening we found out they had eaten Freddie’s strawberry plants… Ooops!
Anyway, tonight I would like to share a card I made recently using one of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals “Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses”.
I created the background using Distress inks. Firstly, I applied the base colour using a piece of cut and dry and then went back in with a darker brown colour and using just the edge of the foam to create the patterns on the sand.
I took a piece of card and wrapped a slightly moist wet wipe around it and took out some of the blue colour to create little ripples in the sea.
For the clouds, I used a piece of card, cut into a cloud shape, and added a darker shade of blue to define the shape.
I stamped the little boy, coloured the image and fussy cut around it. I attached the image using foam pads.
