Funky Fossil June Pre-Release Peeks - Starfish Wishes

Day 3 of the Funky Fossil peeks at the June release and it's all about the beach. Sarah must have known we were going to have a bit of a heatwave here in the UK!

And don't you just love collecting sea shells and filling jars with them? Well here's a card to show that I do!

I started by placing the Funky Fossil stencil Mason Jar onto my card and then popped the Crackle Background stencil under it. I then inked through with some sandy colours. I stamped some shells inside the jar and then added a few extra posing on the outside.

Stamps – Starfish Wishes, Small Print
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black lulu lavender, peanut brittle; Versafine Calir, nocturne
Pens: Copic, RV00, RV02, E21, E23, E25, E31, E33, E35, E44, E47, E49, E51, E55, E57, E59, BV000, BV01

My next card is a riot of colours and I really had fun with the bright vibrancy of my Inktense pencils.

I added a sentiment from Tuesday's peek set Small Print and matted it onto black and then a bright yellow base card.

Inks: Versfaine Clair, nocturne;
Card: Papermill Direct, daffodil yellow, black, super smooth white

My next share is a bit of a beach scene. I created a wave pattern using the Woodgrain Background stencil and the sandy beach using the Seashells stencil.

I then simply stamped the shells on top placing them down in one corner. Two favourites with this card - stamping on top of stencil colours and a corner placement.

Stamps: Starfish Wishes
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, blueprint sketch, peacock feathers, mustard seed

I've one more card to share today - I just couldn't put these beautiful shell stamps away!

I used a light blue card base and the Funky Fossil Fish Background stencil behind a die cut window. Then I stamped, coloured and hand cut some shells to make a cluster at the bottom of the window.

Stamps: Starfish Wishes
Stencils:Fish Background
Card: Papermill Direct, black, super smooth white
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon, lucky clover
Pens: Copic, E50, BG11, BG15

Tomorrow sees the last of the pre-release peeks and it may just be my favourite! Hope to see you then.

Thanks for your time today I'm so pleased you came and kept me company for a while.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
