This week the challenge is "We're All Going on a Summer Holiday" - now it is winter here so it was fun creating a bright summery card. I had originally started off with an Aussie theme of Green and Gold colours but I added the orange just for a bit of contrast.
I coloured the "Primrose - Beach Life" in with tria markers and added crystal effects to the glasses to give it the glass look. I also used glitter pen on the dots on her bathers, rim of her glasses and flicked through her hat! For the card I started with yellow cardstock then added orange then strips of green. I kept the top and bottom of the card yellow to represent the sun and sand! I then put kindyglitz on it for texture! I added the twine, left the card for awhile cos I wasn't quite sure what embellishments to add. A day or two later I remembered I had a box of shells so I punched out some yellow circles covered them in kindyglitz and added the star shells. I left it there but when I went to take the photo I felt it needed something else so I added the thongs!!!
I hope that you can join us this week at Crafty Sentiments!
