I'm back again with a few more of the samples that I made for Crafty Individuals:
I was really happy with the sky on this one as I think it really captures the warmth colours of a tropical beach. I started by using Ink Dusters to colour my background. I then tore the bottom off the card to reveal the white paper which then became the incoming tide. Next, I stamped the palm trees using my stamp press which allowed me to build up the colours. I tore up some copy paper to make a stencil and used it to add the black hills. I laid the finished background over some Kraft card to create the sand. Finally, I stamped this gorgeous couple and coloured them before fussy cutting them out and adding them to the scene. I finished the card by adding the die cut balloon and stamping the starfish and the sentiment.
For this card. I used a sheet from Crafty Individuals 'The Seaside Book.' I created the background on a sheet of white card and then stamped, coloured and fussy cut out the Seaside Friends and then did the same with the deck chairs and the kite. I cut out the main focal image with a circular die to give the effect of looking through a porthole.
Featuring: CI-283, CI-397, CI-278, CI-344 and CI-496
