Twins On The Beach – Card Making

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well.

I recently made this little card as part of a sample batch for Crafty Individuals.  This stamp was featured recently on the Crafty Individuals show on Hachonda.  I do love it and know it is a favourite with lots of Crafty Individuals customers.

The idea behind this card was to make something for Twins. Now then, although these are little boy twins, I think it could easily be changed to two little girls with maybe sun hats on and changing the colours of the clothes or even paper piecing.

Really quick and easy.

I wanted to keep the colours really simple so I stamped the images with Brown Archival Ink and just added some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to the buckets and added skin tones using Tattered Rose Distress Inks diluted with a little water.  An alternative for skin tones would be scribble  brown, yellow and red felt pen ink on a plate and dilute it with water.

I stamped the little boy image, masked him off and then stamped the image again.
I stamped the shell/sentiment image because it is pretty and also to ground the little boys.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:
Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses CI 459
Seaside Treasures CI 272
Brown Archival Ink

Thank you for looking.

Have a great weekend.

Take care,

Flo x

    Absolutely brilliant Florence, love the image and your colours, and yes I agree it could be easily adapted for little girls. Have a lovely weekend, it’s so hot here in Inverness, feels like being back on holiday, not used to this type of heat in the frozen North, Kate x

    I don’t have that stamp! I think I was probably waiting for a girl’s version… It’s a lovely CAS design Florence. xx
