All of the images in this first card are from Gifts From the Sea. They were colored with Copics and cut out. There is also a peek at the gorgeous new Pure Luxury color, Turquoise Sea.
Next up is an adorable new set from Tami Mayberry, called Oh Boy! These images are so cute and perfect for coloring or paper piecing. This set will be wonderful for making cards and scrapbook pages for little boys, but also for big boys with the right color choices.
I used Copics to color my images and used my Spellbinders Rectangle Nestabilities to emboss a border. The sentiment is also from Oh Boy!

And now, here are a few details from making my Gifts From the Sea card...
For the large sand dollar, I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, starting with E33
Blended out from there with E53.
Filled in with E51.
Aded E35 to shade in the holes.
For the clam shell, I started with YR02.
Then I went over the first color with RV23 to pink it up a bit.
Filled in all over with YR000
Added Y21 on either side and then used E35 for some deeper shading along the edges.
For the large starfish, I started with R89.
Filled in with YR000.
I colored with smaller starfish the same way as the sand dollar, then I cut out all the images.
For the background, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White, with my Labels 1 Nestabilities, then sponged with Memento Bahama Blue, while still in the die.
I layered with Pure Luxury Kraft and also used it for the cardbase. All the images were adhered with Pop Dots for a dimensional effect.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
