I Must Go Down To The Sea

Hello, today I have a Criss Cross card to share with you. I have used the Puffins June Monthly Special stamp set from Hobby Art, along with their Shells and By The Sea stamp sets.

The main Puffin and insert scene image were stamped onto white card with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento ink and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I also used a White Uni Posca marker to add white highlights. The sentiment was also stamped with 'Tuxedo Black' Ink.

The shells were stamped onto Seawhite watercolour card with 'Rich Cocoa' Memento Ink and painted with Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolours. I also used the Posca to add highlights to these.

The background papers I used are from the Pound shop, as are the gems and I used 'Vintage Photo' Distress Ink to edge the papers.

I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.


  1. Oh, WOW Sally!!! Your painting is just too fantastic. I've looked at the stamps from Hobby Art and not the merest of chances I could make them look as spectacular as yours. The shells look real like I could pick them up off your card and the Puffins are just beautiful like yesterday. A really wonderful card design too. I wish I had half of your talent. Just adore it!!
