Seas The Day!



My daughter gave me these adorable stamps for Mother's Day! I just love these! I made this card for a co-worker for her birthday. She has two adorable blonde children - a boy and a girl, and next week she heads to the beach for a must-deserved vacation!

I staggered the kids a bit to make the girl look older and taller and "planted" them in the sand. I used my Copic markers to color them. I used a stippling brush to put a glow behind the sun, and put a golden rhinestone for the center. I lined the shells with a glitter pen to give it more pop and framed the picture with blue and yellow papers. I hope she likes it!
