By the Sea

Hi there 🙂 This card features another attempt to use some of the stuff that I JUST HAD TO HAVE (and never used! lol) It was at least 11 years ago that I found these packages of vellum images, so I got 2 or 3 of each design…..and I think I may have used 1 image!!! Well, after coloring up this amazing Herringbone Tile 1 Background from Angie Blom with my Copics, I knew just what to use! The basket look of the background was the perfect thing to accent the vellum pelican, and it’s post stump. Because the coloring of the background showed through the vellum image, I glued it on to black card stock, and fussy cut around it, leaving a bit of an edge for definition. Some matte black enamel dots, and a stamped image, finished this masculine card off 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. Such a great idea to use up some of your old vellum images. It turned into a fabulous card! I recently found a package of scrapbooking images I’ve been keeping in the basement for many years too, may have to move them to my craft room because I think they too would make great cards! Thanks for the inspiration!
    Your card is so perfect for my “I Spy Something with B” at Allsorts, thank you so much for joining in with us this week!

  2. Lovely design! Perfect for a male!
