Hi! It's Georgina again with my second blog post as this month's Guest Designer. My second project is a card with a British seaside feel. I have used stamps from the lovely Seaside No. 1 # and Beside the Seaside stamp sets both of course from The Artistic Stamper. I have used a traditional red, white and blue colour scheme.
I begun by using a range of the stamps from the two stamp sets to create the two background papers.
I used a red and dark red ink pads for the seashell panel. And bright blue and navy blue ink pads for the fish panel. I attached these to scalloped edge panels of coloured card. I like to use stamps from sets to create background designs. You can then easily co-ordinate colours and design, rather than trying to find pre-printed background paper to match.
I stamped the ships wheel design with both a dark brown and Tuxedo Black Memento ink pads. I coloured the stamped images with ProMarkers. I cut out the centre people image from the black stamped image and attached it on top of the brown stamped image. I cut out the wheel and attached it with foam pads onto a white and red die cut circles. I added Glossy Accents to the lenses of the binoculars.
I stamped the umbrella twice in red ink and one in brown. I attached the red layers on top of the brown. For the second red layer I only attached the top front section with foam pads.
The sentiment is also part of the Beside the Seaside stamp set. I stamped it in red and blue inks onto white card. I cut out the words and attached the to a blue card flag shape.
I attached all the elements to a square card blank. To finish I attached a red and blue stamped anchor design with foam pads.
