This is not the card I sat down to make, but is the card I ended up making and it it was simple and fun. Today’s post should be the example I made using this months card sketch. But the kids are on summer break so you make what you can! I will be sure to get it posted this week.
I really love this card, the stamp set that I used came from Dollar Tree. For the last few weeks I have been trying to figure out what summer stamps I wanted to get. I have sold off the majority of my Stampin’ Up stamps and am limited on my collection at the moment. I had to run to the Dollar Tree to get glowsticks for or trip and I managed to “find” myself in the craft section. There it was, the stamp set that solved my what summer stamp set to by dilemma! It has a bunch of cute summer elements and I decided that it would get me through the cards I want to make.
I created the sand background by using a combo of Distressed Inks, Scattered Straw and Walnut stain. I applied the ink with the larger ergo Alte New blending brush. I love that thing, it reduces the amount of time I have to spend adding ink because it covers a larger area. Once I had the colors I was going for, I splotched my VersaMark pad on top if it the pored Clear WOW! embossing powder over the top. Took the heat gun to it and have a fun look that mimics SAND! I added a touch of gold splatter to give the simmer of sand.
The images were colored in with copic sketch makers and the towel that everything leans on is a piece of retired Stampin’ Up DSP. To get the fringed edge I used the Frayed Ribbon from SU! by cutting in half and rough up the edge. Here is the list of copic colors used: Flip Flop R32 RV32 and RV25, Drink in the Sand: E15, E35, E55 and RV24, Sun Glasses: YG03, YG17 and B14.
I hope you enjoyed this card. If you did Leave a comment and let me know! Until next time, Happy Crafting.
