Day at the Beach watercolored

I’m sure that it’s fairly clear by now, but just in case it’s not – I love the new watercolor pencils. And one of the stamp sets that really was made for them is Day at the Beach. Okay, actually there are a lot of stamp sets but today I’m focusing on Day at the Beach. I’ve been a bit slack with my welcome cards – one of my former colleagues joined us at work last week and he hasn’t received his card yet. In my defence, working six days each week is messing with my brain. I am so grateful that I have carding as relaxation, it really helps. So here’s the card that I just made for Ed.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Day at the Beach - Baby Bear

It’s vaguely CASEd from the Occasions catalogue. Well the idea of multiple suns on yellow was the thing that struck me. So here we have first the sentiment in delightful dijon from Baby Bear and then the lovely suns stamped in crushed curry on so saffron. Yes, there are a lot of yellows and to ensure that I included them all ( I think I have), I used the daffodil delight watercolor pencil on the edge of the sun and an aquapainter to spread the color a little. I really like the suns on the diagonal – it’s very eye pleasing. No mats seemed to work nor a different colored card base so I kept it simple with a so saffron base.
