Relaxing Day * MFT Countdown (3)

Hello and welcome to the third day of our MFT June Release Countdown. Only three more days until the release. Today, we're featuring fun beach and ocean themed products. One of my favorite topics to craft with. If I can't go on vacation right now, I simply create one on a card ;-)


Years ago, I did not have many stencils and rarely used them. Today, I can't imagine my crafty time without them. They are so versatile and super fun for quick and cool backgrounds. I used the new Ocean Motion Stencil as well as the Drifts & Hills one. So let's start with the background. I started by covering the sand part with the Drifts & Hills Stencil and did some ink blending with a blue Oxide ink and the Ocean Motion stencil. It is helpful to secure your paper and stencils with painters tape to prevent them from moving around. I did some darker ink blending on the tips of the waves to give them some dimension. Next, I covered the ocean part with the Drifts & Hills Stencil and ink blended the sand. To add some details to the sand, I added dots of white gel pen and brown colored pencil. I die cut my panel to add a clean stitched border and glued it to my card base.

Next, I stamped, colored and die cut my images. I colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to quickly cut them out. I added them to my panel using foam tape. And last but not least, I added my sentiment. I could have stamped it in the sky and with black ink, but I wanted to switch things up a bit and stamped it with Antique Linen Oxyde ink (the same ink I had used for the sand) on my sand hill. It's a bit in disguise this way but I think it's a fun touch. Do you like the idea?
