I have a Breezy birthday card to show today using stamps, stencils and washi tape from the fabulous AALL & Create.
I started by making a gelli print background using PaperArtsy chalk acrylic paints and the #87 Totally Dotty stencil.
I stamped the lighthouse from Bipasha's #442 Sea Essentials stamp set directly onto the background and added some grit texture paste to the bottom section through the beautiful #86 Twirling Tendrils stencil. I thought the tendrils looks like crashing sea waves.
The lighthouse was stamped onto card and fussy cut to lay over the one stamped onto the background - this way the little details surrounding the lighthouse are still in place.
I stamped the flowers from the lighthouse a third time, so that I could colour, fussy cut and shape them to add dimension to the card.
I coloured one of Janet Klein's #463 The Gentlemen. This one reminds me of Captain Birdseye with his heavy, cable, roll neck sweater. I thought he was perfect for the seascape.
I stamped letters from Tracy's #456 Snippet Alphabet to spell out 'Breezy' and the Birthday Wishes come from Tracy's #451 In The Bucket set.
I added some background stamping using # 469 Scripted Semicircles and some border stamping in black using #487 Reverse Semicircles.
To finish, I added some torn strips of #21 Beachrock washi tape.
