Happy Tuesday! Today MUST be better than yesterday... even though it is a dreary day in Kansas. Cloudy, rainy, and still freakin' hot! Speaking of hot, how about a beachy card today?
Some of you might have seen this on Mischelle's blog right before seminar (or was it during seminar?)... anyway, I wanted to show you a couple different views.
Isn't this bird adorable? He is from the Hit the Beach stamp that was used on THIS card... I just masked off the rest of it with post-it notes, inked it up, removed said notes, and stamped the little guy by himself.
He's colored with Prismacolors & mineral oil... I think I made him a bit too pink... he looks kinda sun-burned :) I added a few layers of Crystal Lacquer to his goggles... you can't really see it here, but IRL it's a nice detail.
I also used: White UltraSmooth cardstock, Lilly Anna (pink) & Reece (aqua) cardstocks, and the ribbon is from the Juliette collection.
I stamped the cloud / wave flourish from Spring Dream... doesn't it look like he's going to get pounded from the surf?! I traced over it with either Icicle or Crystal Stickles (I can't remember!) for a little sparkle.
What do you think?
