Hello My Fellow Crafters,
Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I hand stamped for my father-in-law aka Poppa.
I just think the stamps from Art Impression are so funny. When I started designing this card I took this relaxed man sitting in a chair and decided to put him on the beach, under a palm tree. That’s a good way to spend your birthday if you asked me 🙂
Since I don’t have an air brush and I didn’t want to use lots of different color cardstock for the background, I decided to take out my watercolor pencils that have been in this pouch for years and see what I could do. I also used some Copic Sketch markers to color this guys clothes.
Once I stamped the palm tree it looked like it was just growing in the middle of the sand, so I found a stamp of this boat in my stash of rubber stamps, and once I added it to the bottom of the tree it totally looked like it belongs. Added some layers of cardstock to the base of the card, attached some brass brads to the corners and it’s done.
It still amazes me how by just using 3 rubber stamps you can make such a cool handmade/handstamped greeting card.
~ Hope you enjoyed your Day At The Beach ~
Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
