Remember that rhyme? What fun we used to have when we were kids, chanting that rhyme on a hot summer day...
My card today is using up some more of the seashells that were featured on my recent Mermaid card.
I did colour up quite a few extra shells, so thought I had better just get them made up rather than create yet another UFO envelope.
I hand cut some heavy card to make a 5x7 tent fold card. I don't make tent folds very often as sometimes they do not want to stay upright! They can sort of "collapse" when displayed! Luckily, this one is standing up nicely.
I scribbled some Prismacolour pencils across the card front. Just a little bit of blue and a little of a tan colour. I blended them with gamsol and I think I they suggest a nice beachy feel...hopefully you think so too!
I merely arranged the shells, popping the starfish and the conch shell forward with some thin pop dots.
That it! A quick, simple and fun to make beach themed card. I left it with out a sentiment until I decide just what I will use it for.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets (the shells were stamped and fussy cut from snippets)
