Postcard Pals Pelican Card

Hello Stampers ~ up today is a fun Post Card Pals Pelican Card.

Well I finally got internet and TV yesterday.  It took them a long time to get it set up.  They had to use several different boxes before they could get the internet to connect.  It was nice having TV last night.  Today Bijou has a spa appointment early this morning and then the movers are coming with the items from my apartment.  I will have a lot of boxes to unpack but I will finally get my kitchen and craft room supplies so I can set them up.  I will also get my bed which I am most excited about.  I have been on a blow up bed for a little over a week and I am ready to have my bed!  I will be a busy girl over the next few days unpacking as many boxes as I can.  I am hoping to get my craft room set up so I can start making my videos again as well as have a Facebook Live!  Wish me luck on all the unpacking I have.

I have played with several of the images from the Postcard Pals stamp set but had not used the pelican.  I decided to use him today for my card.  I began by stamping him using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then began coloring him in.  I used the following markers Balmy Blue for his vest, Crushed Curry for his bill and feet, Early Espresso for his flying cap, and Soft Sea Foam for the fish.  I used a Crumb Cake marker to color the sand under his feet.  To add some interest, I used some Balmy Blue and an aqua painter to add some background shading.  After it was dry I used the largest Stitched Shapes circle to cut him out.  To make the background I took a piece of Tranquil Textures designer series paper and attached it to a Whisper White card base.  The waves come from the Swirly Scribbles framelits cut out using Blueberry Bushel card stock.  The cattails were made using the Everyday Jars framelits.  I cut them out of Crumb Cake card stock and then colored the tips using an Early Espresso marker.  Everything was layered and then the image was added using dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink and the Pretty Label punch was used to punch it out.  I punched it with the left edge of the sentiment close to the side of the punching area.  I then reinserted it into the punch and put the right edge of the sentiment close to side of the punching area.  That gave me the pointed area at the top and bottom of the center.  Here is the completed Postcard Pals Pelican Card creation.
