Hello fellow Alchemists,
Today I’m sharing a card made with the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box. Of course if you watch the video you will see I did things the hard way 😂 You can buy a box here and see my unboxing here.
Firstly I used the Ric Rac Border Dies to cut two pieces of ric rac in both blues, the teal and the white grey. Then I grabbed my Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean and Antique Linen along with some cheap makeup brushes. I then created some sand with the Antique Linen and sky with the Salty ocean. The sand wasn’t getting dark enough for me so I grabbed a blending tool to add a darker layer. To create clouds in the sky I used some paper towel and water.
Things got crazy with the water when I changed my mind how it was going to look mid way ☺ I decided to use a piece leftover from cutting the ric rac as my horizon and then worked from there. Alternating colours and using the grey as whitewash and breaking waves.
The cuties were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on my Stamp Platform and then coloured with Copics.
Water droplets and goggles glass – BG11
Swimmers and hat ribbon – B66 and B69
Bucket and floater ring – R35 and R46
Hat and Starfish – E31, E33 and E35
Hair and Starfish – E59, E57 and E55
Skin – E0000, E000, E00 Mouth R46 and C7 Cheeks R11
I fussy cut the girls out and adhered them to the card. I used stippling with the Copics to give the sand texture and added some Starfish that I coloured with Copics. The Starfish and sentiment came from the Hampton Arts Make a Splash stamp set. Finally I added some water droplets from Coastal Cuties around the sentiment, adding in some BG11 Copic
I hope you enjoyed the card I made with the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourselves, by for now.
