This week’s card for Sentimental Sundays had me running for my bucket and spade! I used Three Little Summer Girls by All Dressed Up, coloured with ProMarkers and cut on the Silhouette, leaving an offset border.
For the background, I used a stamp from the Beach Images Set by Handmade Harbour, which I won a while back but haven’t had a chance to use. I kept the colouring on the background quite simple, as I wanted the focus of the card to be the little ADU cuties, so I used a dark shade at the point where the horizon meets the sea and again where the sea meets the sand and just blended the darker shade into the lighter area to soften the lines.
The papers are all from the DoCrafts Ahoy There collection, with a little Bazzill cardstock for the frame and aqua mat. Finally, a little birthday sentiment, printed directly onto vellum and held in place with a couple of co-ordinating brads.
Our theme this week is “Summer” – and this card says it all for me! I’d love to see what summer means to you – come over to Sentimental Sundays and share it with us this week!
