Beach Squares

I am having fun with the Foiled Fox again today showing you all four stamps from the Simply Graphic’s seaside set. I used the lighthouse and the beach huts stamps in Wednesday’s cards. Today I arranged all four stamps in the stamp positioner then stamped with versamark on cold pressed watercolour paper before embossing in gold powder.

I used zig clean color real brush pens for all the colouring in the squares. The pens are highly pigmented so a little dab goes a long way. It doesn’t matter so much the exact colours I used to paint the squares but I took care to repeat the same colours in more than one square so the group looks cohesive. I used the same blues in all four squares, yellow in three of the squares and grey on the lighthouse and the bird. (Zig pens used: light blue, cobalt blue, blue, green, yellow, light brown, brown, light gray, carmine red)

Once all the colouring was done I popped up the square panel on a few pieces of cardstock then attached to a 4¾” square cardbase. Make sure you pop over to the Foiled Fox blog and shop for inspiration and more lovely clean designs from Simply Graphic.

    Beautiful! The colours are gorgeous. You’re very talented. When I was young we had a cottage at Presqu’ile Provincial Park with a lighthouse close by. This card brought back beautiful memories.

    The sea theme is followed through beautifully with the wonderful summer bright colours for the four panels Heather and love the gold embossed outlines which add more wonderful shine. x

    Pretty, especially with the gold embossing. I need to get out of my same card creating versions and try things, especially watercoloring.
