Topflight Stamps / Crafty Individuals - By The Sea

Hi everyone and welcome to the Topflight Stamps blog!  It's Jenny here, joining you with a simple card to usher in the summer!

The stamp set I'm using today comes from Crafty Individuals - it's called By The Sea and is filled with fun seaside images.  
To create my card, I die cut a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock - this cardstock is great for blending watercolor ink / paint - today I'm using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.   I then stamped one of the deckchairs from the stamp set in black waterproof ink and heat set it.  

I then masked off a square panel with masking tape and used my brush markers to create a sunset over a sea, very simply, overlapping and blending each color into the next.  I didn't mask off the deck chair, I just colored round the edges. I held my hand over the deckchair and spritzed the background with shimmery spray lightly.  I then removed the masking tape and used some simple coloring to the chair, and some shadows underneath.   I stamped the sentiment in grey ink underneath and added a glitter heart so it says 'love' By the Sea.

I popped the entire panel up on foam tape onto a woodgrain panel card base.   Super simple but really fun to create!  I hope you like it! You can find more details on the supplies I used over on my blog.

Have a wonderful day.
