It is so grim and gray outside today and being outdoors was certainly not tempting! How dull! Nah, I’m joking. What a perfect reason to make cards! I have made quite a few cards today actually. This post here is the card I made for my youngest cousin who will be 11 next month.
She is quite fond of water and swimming so I went hunting for a stamp to fit the purpose. I found a great one at Saturated Canary by Krista Smith. It is called beach baby. I added some water to the scenery behind her so I could get some blue added. Everything has been coloured with copics. Red was chosen for the top and sandals I decided to use that colour throughout various elements as well.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the shells from a local shop. The sandy paper is from an old pad I have by Ursus (I think) called Inspiration and the boats are from Maja Design. The happy birthday die and stamp are from Whimsy Stamps.
