For my card, I’m on the beach! I wanted a real tropical feel to go along with this fabulous beach scene from Happy Retirement. After stamping, I extended the horizon just a tad with a waterproof ink pen then colored it with a combination of sponging, markers and water colors. Highlights were added with a white gel pen. For the frames, I used rectangular dies to cut the inside out of the white frame then lined it with a black pen. The raffia frame is a die cut piece of cardboard wrapped with raffia then a little brown ink was sponged on top. I made one of these years ago and I thought it would be a good accent for this scene. The flower was die cut numerous times then sponged to get the right colors. I added a simple raffia bow behind it. The background paper was stitched together a little haphazardly for a little extra something. The finished card is 5 x 7.
Now I’ll send you on to your next stop…the blog of the Fabulous Angie!
