On to my card! I went for the challenge to use a creative combination of images. I knew I wanted to use the OPEN WINDOW stamp, and from there decided to use the adorable beach characters DYLAN, EBONY and SANDY to create a fun scene. So, Dylan is no longer holding a shell in his hand, it’s a biscuit/cookie, and he’s watching from the window as his sisters/friends are about to start “landscaping” Mum & Dad’s garden. Haha!
My card also counts for the Rubber Stamps Only challenge, as all the images used are in lovely rubber, and the Merge Multiple Stamps challenge, as I have used four to create my scene!
I had a lot of fun colouring this one, although next time I’d tackle the wall differently, maybe with some brickwork, and probably add some flowers/grass along the bottom of it.
Coloured with Copic Markers on MAKE IT COLOUR BLENDING CARD. I kept the rest of the card very simple, and just layered some old Crate Paper I had in a drawer, with some red cardstock. The scene does all the work!
