At EasePosted: August 11, 2021
Wouldn’t you love to have a sweet beach hut like this one? To be honest I would love to be at the beach, hut or not! Instead I am enjoying a great summer with just the perfect mix of hot and warm days. The garden is growing and it is great to be outdoors. To celebrate the joys of summer I have teamed up with the Foiled Fox to host a Summer Giveaway.
I kept things clean and simple for this beach hut card, it wasn’t my first go with the PB ‘at ease’ set; I completed a couple of other panels using more colours and elements in the scene. I think this simple approach is my favourite.
I stamped the hut in soft stone ink and did further stamping with distress inks. I used the salty ocean, rusty hinge and chipped sapphire distress inks to paint the hut, roof and railings as well as the fish decorations.
To add a background I placed some post-its over the hut so I could blend some ink for the sand and water. I used the torn edge of a post it to mask while blending. As I often do I popped up the panel on the same colour cardstock for a subtle ‘shadow’ frame. I added the sentiment from PB ‘enliven’ set because nothing says ‘great day’ to me like a beach themed card!
