My Hearts Pleasure

Oh Happy Day

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week. About this time of year we are starting to get cabin fever from being inside so much due to the winter temperatures. So this week we created cards that remind us of the warmer weather that will come with the change of seasons. Here is the inspiration

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #136 Cabin Fever

And here is my card I created

Oh Happy Day

Who doesn’t love a beautiful day at the beach??

I started with a kraft card base and then added a layer of Tempting Turquoise. For the main layer I used a piece of water color paper and stamped the Beach Scene, from BlueKnightRubberStamps, with StaZon black ink. I watercolored the sand and water sections using distress inks and a water pen. After that dried I went back and stamped the sand castle and sand toys and watercolored them. Next I stamped the logs on a scrap piece and watercolored them and fussy cut after it was dried. I added those in the sand using dimensions. Now on to the sky. Using a cloud stencil by Inkylicious and distress inks I created the clouds for the sky. This was my first attempt at creating clouds and although I’m not unhappy with it I know I definitely need to practice this technique! To finish I stamped the sentiment in the clouds using a set from Green Grass Stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Happy Stamping 🙂
