Good Sunday afternoon. I have another beach card to share with you today but this time I placed the birds as the main focus of the scene. I used the new By The Sea Stamp Set and coordinating By The Sea Die Set paired with the Sea Plants and framed with the Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames set.
I started by sponging in the sand using a mini applicator using Vintage Photo ink. Next I masked off the water line with a piece of Post-It Adhesive and sponged Broken China ink in the darker blue water with a mini applicator. I removed the tape and sponged in the sky area using a cloud stencil and ink blending tool. I used my finger to lightly apply white embossing paste on the water. I didn’t apply much of the paste because I wanted the water to appear in the distance. Before the paste was dry I applied clear glitter to add a bit of sparkle to the water. It doesn’t show really well in the pictures. I attached the scene to the frame using mounting tape. I wanted there to be dimension between the frame and card base so I attached it using another layer of mounting tape.
I stamped the birds on white cardstock using Pumice Stone ink and embossed with clear embossing powder to set the ink. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used a mini applicator to lightly apply a bit of Pumice Stone ink to the birds. I colored the legs and beaks with a Spiced Marmalade marker. I cut three sections of the foliage and cut them in different lengths and tucked them in behind the frame using glossy accents.
Here’s a closer view of the scene. When I create a scene like this I love framing it with an all white background so the bright colors pop.
Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great week.
