My crafty mojo is almost non-existent these days, so this card took much longer to make than it should have. I hope I get my mojo back soon! I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and created a scene around him. The sky was made by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using a homemade cloud template. For the waves, I sponged Salty Ocean Distress Ink on a number of die-cut wave borders (Taylored Expressions).
For the sun, I inked the Lawn Fawn die-cut with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The cute little jellyfish and starfish were already coloured, cut, and covered in Glossy Accents - they were part of a prize I won from Little Scrap Pieces (thank you, Karen, I love them!). I stamped a little fish (Neat and Tangled Meowwww), coloured it with Prisma pencils, fussy cut, and added Glossy Accents. The seagulls are from Newton's Nook Flirty Flamingos. As for the sentiments, I used two puns: "It's Your Bird-day" is from From the Heart Stamps Birthday Candle Birdbrain, and "Best Fishes" was a freebie from Crafty Paws.
Here's Becca's inspirational mood board.
