Pig Time!

>> Thursday, July 22, 2021

Good morning!
Hey, you guys don't mind more beach themed cards do ya? 
These so make me think of vacation somewhere,
ANYWHERE would be nice!
For this card I've used DRS stamps: Hula Pig, Palm Tree,
I stamped the pig first then masked, next I started stamping and masking the Palm trees.
I left the mask on then stamped the sail boats.  
I used a circle mask to create the sun/horizon using blending brushes for the inks.
The water and everything else are done with Copic Markers.
I drew in a shoreline.
The dies I used today are from Rubbernecker and Spellbinders.

My next card is a slimline card
done with DRS stamps: Sea Grass, 4 in 1 In The Sky

The slimline card works very well for this little scene I think.
I stamped the Sea Grass and Leonard first then masked and stamped the dock, lighthouse 
sailboat.  I masked the dock and stamped in some extra birds.  For the bird between the buildings I stamped another one and cut it out and placed it over the stamped image on the card.
I used a torn paper towel edge to make the clouds in the sky using a sponge and Brilliance Sky Blue Ink.  The sun was drawn in using a circle template and Copic Markers.  I drew in a rough horizon line then colored with Copic.  The waves coming in to shore are done with a Snow Pen, puffed with heat then glittered with Stickles.
I actually used the kite from 4 in 1 In The Sky for Leonard's kite as it is a bit bigger.
Thanks for visiting today!

You stopped by my blog (thank you so much) and I went to visit yours and saw you have three...but, of course, I picked this one to visit being as I've been a card maker for decades--LOL! You make your own stamps! Awesome! I shall be back. So glad you visited my little blog. Thanks for the well wishes. :)

I can feel the ocean breeze just looking at these cards! The skies are so beautiful and I love all the details that bring these scenes to life…the birds, the tiny ships and the sea foam! Gorgeous scenes!

Both of these beach scenes are just AMAZING Robin! Your attention to detail and coloring are incredible!
It's really kinda sad that I'm jealous of a couple of cartoon pigs :)

I never tire of your summer themed cards. The beach scene is so beautiful and that sky is incredible. I just love how you colored it up. And oh what fun to fly that kite on the beach too. Two amazing scenes and both are just so beautifully thought out.
