Tons of F-U-N

How many of you are ready for the beach?  I know I am.  After this “time out” I hope we don’t all look like hippos.  I know I personally could use a bit of exercise.  Okay, all that a bit was off topic.  How about a cut hippo on the beach having a grand ol’ time playing in the sand.  This fun newer set from Whimsy Stamps is sure to make you smile.

Creating the Card

This is another fun and simple card.  Using the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle dies I created the layers.  The top layer was airbrushed to give it some clouds.  No beach scene is complete without a sun, so I added the sun from Up in the clouds.

The image was then colored and placed on the lower portion of the card with the “weight” of the image…the larger portion being on the right side to balance out the sunshine.

I know we can’t all run to the beach right now but we can “run” to the Whimsy store and treat ourself to some fun products.

All these products are currently in stock.  I shared the links below.

  1. Hi I was wondering if you could tell me what Coptic Markers you use I’ve been looking at them for a while I just want to make sure I get the right ones

    1. Hello Diane, I use the Copic Sketch style markers. As for which ones to buy first, that is not a quick reply. You can find some great color combinations if you check out the Color of the Day link on the right. You can choose some fun combos to get you started. I would find something from every color family to start. Like a blend of red, orange, green, brown etc. They are great markers although the refills are hard to find right now. I think you will enjoy the markers.
