It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used High Hopes Stamps’ image Surf Scene Dudley – S244. I’ve seen surfers in action while travelling the world, but have never gone on one myself. Who knows, maybe someday???? Dudley, sure looks happy sporting his vacation pose. LOL!
Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and used Copic – Opaque White to create the splash on the waves. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were both used to die cut the coloured image and background papers. The edges were inked around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough. The image was then attached to the Aqua background using double-sided tape.
To assemble the card, I began with a base card of Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I popped up the 2 backgrounds with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and attached them both to the base card. Lastly, I added some pop-dots from CC Designs – Dragon Dreams Enamel to finish it off.
