Hello everyone, today I would like to share a few cards I have made using Imagine Design Create’s wonderful seaside and ocean themed stencils. There are three in their new stencil and masks collection, Fishes, Seaside Kisses and Shells & Starfish. All three stencils work wonderfully together as well as on their own.
My first card is very simple, but I think you’ll agree very effective, using only the conch shells from the Shell & Starfish stencil set and three colours of Distress Oxides (Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Fossilised Amber). I picked kraft card for a sandy base colour, which the Distress oxides work wonderfully on and finished pulling it all together with a bit of doodling with a white gel pen. The happy sentiment is from Imagine Design Create Solid Circle stamp set.
I used a mixture of Distress Inks and Oxides (D-ink, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio, D-oxides, Fossilised Amber, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Twisted Citron), acrylic paint and texture paste to bring the whole card together, and of course it wouldn’t be a card made by me if there wasn’t a little doodling too using a white gel pen.
I hope you like the samples I’ve shared with you today, and look forward to sharing again next week. Eli x
