To begin my card I chose the two summery looking bodies, the monkey’s head, flower and the two tails from the Comfy Creatures stamp set. I also took the little island from the Island Getaway set and the cat head from Sending My Love to stamp and colour too. To colour these in, I’m going to be using watercolours. I’ve been completely obsessed with water colouring everything lately! I stamped out my images in black ink and clear embossed over them and then coloured in my images with Zig Clean Colour markers. To cut out all my images I used the coordinating dies from all three sets.
For a little bit of a different background I decided to cut down a piece of watercolour cardstock and then cut it at a diagonal to create two different angled panels. I thought it would be fun and a little bit of a different look. I used some Distress Inks on both pieces using various yellows on the top panel and blues on the bottom panel. I sort of figured it looked like sand and water I guess. I the splattered some water on to give a splotchy look – I love doing this! I adhered the two angled pieces together with some washi tape on the back side to make sure they don’t shift and then I added some fun foam at the back to permanently adhere them together and then adhered it onto my card base. I then took my images and mounted them all on foam adhesive and placed them down into the bottom right corner of my card. To finish off my card I stamped out the ‘Happy Retirement’ sentiment from the Comfy Creatures set and white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock. I also adhered this using foam adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. I just love creating island scenes and I think those little bodies from the Comfy Creatures set is just perfect and I also love how it works so well with other stamp sets and you can mix and match from previously released sets – just makes it that much more versatile!
Make sure you check back tomorrow and the rest of the week to see what the other design team ladies have designed! I’m sure they’re going to be fantastic.
