Hi there TRC fans,
Mary-Ann here sharing with you what I created with July's Creative Cafe Kit of the Month. For my first card, I selected the stamp set "Fun in the Sun."
Here is a look at my card.
I quickly located the sun paper that is included in your 6x6 Echo Park paper pad. I used the top left portion. It was perfect for what I had in mind. Then I created my own faux Polaroid frame. I cut a block 3x4 and then cut a square out of it.
I decided where I wanted to place my beach chair stamp. I turned my frame over and used it as a mask for the placement of my stamp. I needed to make sure my sun and clouds were visible.
Once I removed the frame, I went ahead and colored my design. I used watercolors and a blender pen. If your more professional, you can use Copics, markers, watercolors, whatever you have on hand. I also took a white gel pen and colored my clouds. It is hard to see here, but it does add a touch of detail.
I then backed my frame with foam tape and re-applied the correct side to my chair block.
I layered papers and did some stitching and decided my card needed a bit of wood veneer. The sandals from Queen & Company were perfect. I used a brown Stampin' up pen but Copics or any other marker will do. You could also use paint, spray paint, ink pad, whatever you have on hand to color your sandals. I then went of over the straps with my gel pen that I used on the clouds. This help give the sandals a bit of detail.
I hope that you have been crafty with your July kit. Be sure to share your creations with us on Instagram and Pinterest. Tag us with "@therubbercafe" so we can see what you have been creating.
