Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. The weather has been a bit patchy here, but we’ve been having a nice relaxing time. Lots of crafting and colouring for me!
I was having fun playing with crafty supplies last night, and had a sudden flash of inspiration! It’s quite rare for me to sit, colour images and put a card together from start to finish in one sitting, but that’s exactly what I did! I couldn’t wait to share this one with you all, because it is just TOO cute.
I used one of my favourite Some Odd Girl Stamps clear stamp sets – Hey Kaylee. Just love Kaylee, such a fun character, and the little accessory stamps in the set are adorable. SQUEEE! Love that little snail hitching a ride.
I’ve seen a few cards lately using the negatives from die cutting, and this was perfect for creating the sky to go behind Kaylee and her little friends. I used MFT Die-Namics Flat Bottom Clouds to cut the cloud shapes from my blue cardstock, and layered over some hammered white card. Perfect! I then used the MFT Die-Namics Fresh Cut Grass border die to create the grass. The sentiment comes from the Hey Kaylee stamp set. I cut one of the MFT Die-Namics Sentiment Strips from white card, stamped the sentiment and then chopped it in half.
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers before cutting them out to pop up on foam pads in front of my background. I used the colourless blender pen to help create some texture on the turtle’s shell, which turned out pretty well.
That’s it! Just a cute little card for today. Enjoy your Sunday, and I’ll be back tomorrow with another fun project!
That’s it! Pretty cute, huh?
