OK, I am having SO much fun with this month’s products and I have a couple of cards for you featuring Beach Scene Builder Die-namics. I love creating scenes and this thing makes it SO easy! For my first card did a watercolor wash background on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors, adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base, and built my scene on it.
I stamped the sentiment from Beach Bunnies Stamp Set on Latte card stock for the beach element and I used Summer Splash card stock for the sea. I added lots of low lying clouds across the horizon—some of these are meant to be islands but they totally work for those clouds, too :) I added my palm tree and the umbrella from LJD All Heart, colored with Copic markers. Ahhh, take me away!!!
My second card adds those adorable Seaside Seagulls into the scene and I sponged my clouds with the new—and quite fabulous—Cloud Stencil.
First of all, notice that I flipped the beach and sea elements on these two cards. On two earlier cards I used two more variations so that’s FOUR ways you can configure how you arrange your beach and sea elements!!! Talk about versatile! I sponged my clouds with Blue Breeze dye ink, added my beach, palm tree and sun. For the sea, I cut the waves and outlined them with a Uni-Ball White Gel Pen then stamped the sentiment—I love that sentiment!!
I stamped the seagulls on X-Press It Blending Card with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and inserted them into the slits and was done! I do love those seagulls!
And that’s it from me for MFT’s May New Product Launch! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
