Happy Retirement card

Hi again!

I have another card to share with you today. This week I'm at the Avery Elle blog featuring the Shine Bright stamp set and coordinating dies from the new release.

I made a retirement card and because this kind of cards are made for adults, I tried to make something more serious than my usual style, but keeping it mine. And I really like the final result :)

I played with Distress inks and Copic markers to achieve this look, I wanted to create a peaceful and beautiful scene by the sea. I also added some details like the waves and stars with a white gel pen.

I hope you like it and feel inspired to use this stamp set, I love all the different possibilities and kinds of cards that you can create using it!

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs!
