Happy Wednesday to all of you – Chris here with you today with this little sunny card. At the moment it‘s very hot here, so I thought I need a card where are these cuties have a wonderful day at the beach. Some of you possibly know I love to mix and match different stamp sets, so I used several stamp sets for this project.

I used:

First of all I stamped all images on alcohol marker based paper, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

For the background I used a cloud stencil  and blended with Distress oxide inks (Peacock feathers, Tumpled glass). To create the beach I used the Pond Builder die and blended also with Distress oxide ink colors like Scattered straw and Peacock feathers (for the sea). I also used a layer of vellum on the cloudy background to make the sky stand out from the sea.

All that was left to do now was arranged the critters on my card base and they were ready for a sunny day at the beach.  I hope I could (despite the heat) inspire you and you find some „me time“ for crafting.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafty time
