Bec is hosting for us this time and would like to see your creations with lovely warm summer colours.
I chose to make a card focussing on a seaside view this time, again using some scrap card from my stash.
I have lots of squares of watercolour card because my watercolour pad is A4 - inevitably I trim it square, so end up with that long strip over!
The base cards were edged with a punch (sorry - forgot which one!) which had a look of waves about it, and were layered.
For my topper, I used an acrylic block on which I scribbled in random lines using my aqua water colour pens. When I had the colours about right, I spritzed it with water, and then pressed the block itself onto the water colour card.
This left me with some stripes, and I used some hobbyart stamps to make a scene, using black ink. I coloured the stamps in using the aqua pens - it's amazing how you can give definition to random lines just with a few images!
I finished the card off with a stamped seashell, that I coloured with one of the pens.
I haven't put a sentiment on there yet - not sure if I want it to be a birthday or what. I've found myself doing this more often now - it adds a bit of versatility to the cards when I am choosing which occasion to use them for.
