ID: MC July/15 - Pelican Enjoy Your Day HB - Remember card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 12, 2015

There were a bunch of challenges calling for seaside/beach/summer fun...

I'm using sentiment & quote stamps from Quietfire Design

("Happy Birthday Plain & Simple" 7pce set ); ("We Cannot Tell..." 2 pce companion set); ("Garden Delights" 8 pce set)


Side folded my blue card.

On a separate piece of white cardstock stamped on the diagonal the "Beach Sand" (Starving Artistamps) in blues to mimic sea foam., them with lighter blues in the water area. Sponged Distress "Tumbled Glass" in the water area.

Sponged "Antique Linen" and "Vintage Photo" on the beach area. Stamped the beach sand using "Tea Dyed" (It's Prince Edward Island  reddish sand...). Stamped the swirly stamp (Designs by Ryn "Sea Creatures 2" set) using "Salty Ocean" & "Picked Raspberry".

Stamped the sandpipers (Old Island) using Versafine Black Onyx and colored the bodies with a white colored pencil.

Stamped the "Enjoy your Day" using "Faded Jeans" and clear embossed. Stamped the Birthday sentiment with the black onyx.

Made silhouette images of shells (Old Island ), starfish (Designs by Ryn) and Pelican (Old Island) and cut with my electronic cutter on white cardstock, then stamped using various browns and Pumice. Coloring in some areas using a waterbrush and Distress pads.  Adhered these elements to the card front.

Adhered this layer on to the blue card. Final touch tied a piece of string to a gold shell charm and adhered to the pelican beak using a glue gun.



On the inside cut a piece of white paper and stamped the quote using the black onyx, clear embossed.

The bunch of seashells (Evo) is another silhouette stamp image I cut with my electronic cutter. Stamped the shells with the black and colored with Distress pads and a waterbrush.

Sponged some of the linen and photo around the edges. Stamped the beach sand with the linen. Stamped the sandpiper with the black.
