This set was released a couple of years ago and I love it! I haven't used it in awhile but this was the perfect time. For the images, I used the Tickled Pink stamp set. Again, this set was released awhile ago but is still fun and trendy. Who doesn't love a beach bound flamingo??
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut my images out, then planned the scene I was going to create. I die cut a circle from the Stitched in Circles Die Set and did a bit of messy ink blending with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I wasn't concerned with getting a smooth blend as the "patchiness" gives the look of clouds.
As you can see, I changed my mind. I decided to ink blend directly on a panel cut from the Fancy Frames Die Set. I used the negative space from the circle die cut as a quick and easy mask.
Now, this is where I cheated a bit. I could not resist using the brand new Beach Scene Dies on this scene!! I die cut the "sand" and umbrella and used Distress Inks to give them colour.
Before adhering everything to the die cut panel, I did some masking of the sentiment with washi tape to break it up into two separate stamps.
I adhered everything to a kraft card base with a combination of liquid glue and foam adhesive.
Of course I stamped "fabulous" a little crooked but I went with it!
A little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents add a bit of sparkle and shine to different areas of the images.
I hope you enjoyed this "look back" at some of the older products that are available in the shop!!
