I'm so happy that Easter is here. I get 4 days off in a row - wooo hoooo. Working as a pharmacy assistant in this day and age is certainly a challenge. I LOVE my job but it's very exhausting at the moment.
To relax, I tend to stamp and colour images. I've just received new goodies just in time for the extended long weekend.
I was totally inspired by the designers over at the Lawn Fawn blog. For this card, I followed the tutorial to create the boat (but altered it to suit my card) and used elements of Tammy's card to create mine. I didn't have all the stamp sets she used but I love how it turned out. I coloured everything with polychromo pencils.
My new sets included 'Ocean Shell-fie' and 'Ahoy Matey'. I also used 'Life is Good' which has been in my stash forever.
I also received blending brushes in the mail - I'm late to the party with these and I love them! I used them to create my background using distress inks. Water was flicked and mopped up with paper towel to create interest. I also used a brown glitter pen and chalk pen on the sand.
The sky was created using LF's Cloudy stencil.
I also received the new 'Snow Globe scenes' by Lawn Fawn and the 'Shaker Add-ons'.
These are really cute and create the best little shakers. I used mine on a card but you can create tags or ornaments as well!
I stamped my little scene and coloured in with markers. I assembled my shaker and adhered it a pretty piece of Christmas paper in my scrap basket (cut with the LF Outside In Scalloped dies). I also used the sentiment from the 'Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments' and the joyful stamp and die from 'Mice on Ice'.
