This is my entry to the WMS blog party in This Post
There are still a couple of hours left to enter the links close at 6:30pm my time tonight! The theme is Summertime fun....check out the details in the post below or click here.
I made a little scrappy card because summer for me is usually all about what bits of the beach I find scrunched up in my pocket later on... I'm not much of a beach bod myself but I do like to see the wee folk having fun so we go as weather permits...
Anywhoo I have a wee how-to on how to create a fast simple scene with My Island stamps and a brayer.
I used my brayer to create instant location! I was not particularly careful because careful is time consuming and I have no spare time available for consumption today.
I just inked it up and rolled back and forward about 3 rolls... think that's Daffodil Delght SU...
Inked the brayer with orange ink and rolled, more so towards the bottom of the yellow panel..
Inked brayer in brown - early Espresso SU (without washing...because that's how I roll....LOL...did you see what I did there...) with the brown ink I picked a spot about a third of the way up and sat the brayer down. I rolled it back and forward for a distance of about a quarter inch and when it had made a nice heavy brown line I rolled it on down to the bottom. Instant evening sea.
I inked the small palm tree Island from My Island and stamped it on the brown 'horizon' line that I just brayered. Done. Mere seconds of work.....
I trimmed out the image, distressed and stitched around it - I also ended up folding it up a little to make it more square to suit my card base better.
Below are the two patterns I made with stamps for some background interest - I love that little hibiscus group from Free Spirit. Stamped it on some pattern paper and added a litttle of the blue tone via copics.
went mad with the sewing machine, but it feels like ages since I have sewn anything so...
Layered it all up and stuck it down with a little help from home made washi tape - see here for how to make some of your own.
Hope it tickles!
