Welcome! Kaylee here and this week I’ve thrown together a little bright ink and some of the awesome stamps in Tina Ollett’s Seaside Girl collection to create a cute little beach themed card that would be perfect for a bunch of occasions all year round!

I started by laying out the stamps in an arrangement along the front edge. I needed to see the order I had to stamp and mask. The stamps that are on the top had to be stamped first then masked so that the next images could be stamped.

Because I wanted to colour the images with water based dye inks, I used the Stayz alcohol ink to stamp the images so the inks wouldn’t run past the outline of the image.

Once the stamping was done, the colouring started. I stamped a small area of each colour on a glass plate. I used a water pen and dye inks for this. Then I added a touch of glitter on parts of the shells using a glitter pen.

On the inside, I placed a strip of washy tape just a bit wider than the front cut edge then heat embossed the ‘Net’ stamp using white embossing powder.

Once the embossing was set, I randomly added blue ink over the area using the blending brush.

I cut out a sentiment panel, distressed the edges, backed with cardboard, added a string tie and glued it to the front to finish up.

All then we are all done! Just fussy cut around the outline edge so the inside panel can be seen.
