Wetlands by the Tide

Here is another beach scene I created using the sandpipers from the  Wetlands stamp set, the shell from the By the Tide set, an the "Happy Birthday" from Rose Wonder (2016 Occasions). 

  • The base of my card is Tempting Turquoise cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4" in the middle.
  • The second layer is Basic Black cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4".
  • The third layer is Whisper White cut at 3-3/4" x 5".
  • The fourth layer is Crumb Cake cut at 2" x 5" but torn along the long edge and sponged with Soft Suede to create the beach.  Stamp "Happy Birthday" in Soft Suede ink.
  • For the sky and ocean, I used Tempting Turquoise ink lightly over half the Whisper White.   The other half I used Crumb Cake to create the beach.
  • I stamped the sandpipers with Archival Basic Black ink.  I used the Gel Pen to create waves.
  • I added the Crumb Cake cardstock that I had already prepared with Snail Adhesive to the bottom of my card.
  • I stamped the shell on Whisper White cardstock and used the Blushing Bride marker to color it in. I also edged it with a Soft Suede marker.   I added the Clear Wink of Stella to make it shiny.
  • Then cut it out with Paper Snips and add Dimensionals to adhere it to the beach.
