Hey there everyone.
I hope you are having a sunny day! The sun has finally come out here in Southern Cal... don't know why we're having such a cool July, but I'm loving it. We had a pretty good shake, rattle and roll yesterday afternoon... they called it a "moderate earthquake" at 5.4 but I was hanging on to my desk (*grin*). The card I've made today for MOJO146 is all about summer. I made it for our grandson's birthday... I'm sure he'll 'relate'.
This card uses my new favorite stamp set from Verve called Relax. I love it... there are so many fun elements in the set. This card basically involves coloring and cutting/pasting. I stamped off several surfboards, waves, palm trees and a few sunshines and colored them with my Copics. Then I cut them out and started arranging the placement. I used another favorite... Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket for my paper and matched my coloring to it. I really enjoyed making this little vignette using Julee's sketch. It doesn't show up very well in the picture but while the white paper was still in the oval nestie, I sponged so saffron around the edges...it shows IRL. I used some cork for the dunes and a little piece of mesh for rest the boards against. I used twine for an accent 'ribbon'... the card is on a kraft base. I hope you enjoy it and have a great day!
Wishing you fun in the sun...
