I Hope Your Birthday is a SPLASH!

Hello and welcome

I had lots of fun creating this cute little beach scene on a slimline card. I hope you like it too!

After sketching out the layout for the card, I stamped the fun animals using MFT – Sunshine & Friendship stamp set and the ball and palm trees from MFT – Penguins in Paradise stamp set.

These were watercoloured using Distress Inks and then used them to create the beach, waves and sky. Some white acrylic paint was used to add details to the waves, beach and clouds.

The sentiment is from the Sunshine and Friendship set.

To finish I added some die cuts from Memory Box – Seaside Treasures dies.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Can I just say that your ocean waves and sky, which I’m thinking you freehanded are simply amazing! Of course, the critters enjoying their time at the beach are adorable. The sentiment is just perfect for this card. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
