Day At The Beach – Card Making

Happy Saturday evening to you.

I hope everyone is ok and your weekend is going well.

Tonight’s little card is another one made with the “Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses” new rubber stamp from Crafty Individuals.

I thought it would be fun to add little shoes/socks to this little character.

I stamped the beach hunts and then masked them off with some paper so that I could colour the background.  The background was coloured using Distress inks and a foam pads in a similar way to a previous card here.
I  coloured the beach huts with some water colour crayons.
To seal all of the inks I gave the piece a quick spray of fixative and then a coat of mod podge. I stamped the little boy image and added the lines for the socks/shoes, coloured it, cut it out and then attached the piece using foam pads.

The base of the focal piece is water colour paper/card.  When I had finished it and added a coat of Mod Podge I did think maybe something similar could be used for a home decor project maybe for a child’s play room or nursery.

    Aw he’s just so cute Flo.
    Lots of work has gone into the end result, and the end result is incredible. I agree, it would be a lovely framed art piece for a little boys room or playroom, or even some artwork for a seaside holiday home.
    A work of heart Florence and I love it.
