Hi, Friends! It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness and Instagram.
I hope you are getting a little time to relax this summer! Just looking at this tranquil little scene puts me in a better state of mind!
This easel card was created using two stamp sets from Dare 2B Artzy, Shine On and Flip Flops.
I began by stamping the lighthouse and the flip flops with Totally Black ink. They were colored with the following Copic markers:
Lighthouse E30, E31,E23
BG01, B02, B05
C1, C3, C5
Flip Flops B00, B21, B24
The background was created with Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans, Fossilized Amber, and Broken China Distress Oxides. A few splashes of water, and I was ready to dry the background and stamp the birds and the sentiment. After cutting out the lighthouse and flip flops with the coordinating dies, I popped up the lighthouse and flip flops with foam tape. The dimension on the flip flops provides the easel card with the mechanism to stand up.
Just a little reminder about the July Challenge…don’t forget to link up your projects made with bright colors for a chance to win a Dare 2B Artzy stamp set and ink pad!
Happy summer and happy stamping!
