There are lots of inspiring summer challenges at the moment so I decided to use my Goldie digi stamp by Sylvia Zet at Wee stamps for a summer themed card. Unfortunately this shop seems to be down at the moment but an alternative is to get the rubber stamp or buy the topper at Hobby House. I created a background for the image using Craft Artist 2 with sea in the circle and sand outside it in the square.
I coloured the image using Promarkers. I pushed myself to try some different colours and I like how it turned out.
Hair: Honeycomb, ginger, spice and terracotta
Skin: Ivory, blush, dusky pink, tea rose
Tail: Amber, pumpkin, orange, burnt orange
Flowers: Artic blue, sky blue
Hearts: Antique pink, ruby
Snail: Blush, dusky pink, putty, tan
Bubbles: Aquamarine, soft aqua, turquoise
I added some highlights to the hair using Letraset metallic red gold and to the bubbles with Letraset metallic green and Sakura Stardust green star. Finally I covered each bubble using Sakura Stardust clear star.
I created the background paper and sentiment using Craft Artist 2. I used digital starfish embellishments to match my theme. I edged the papers using Promarkers and matted them onto plain yellow card. The sentiment looks like a sign on weathered wood with chalk writing. I curled the sentiment to make it ‘pop’ and added pearl embellishments.
I would like to enter the following challenges
