So for my card today I used the new Summer Friends stamp set to create an ocean scene along with the Scallop Rectangles Dies and Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.


To begin my card today I first stamped and coloured my images from Summer Friends with Copic Markers. I made sure I used bright colours to help set the scene for summer. Once they were coloured, I die cut them out using the coordinating dies. While I had my die cutting machine out, I also die cut a Scalloped Rectangle Frame out of white cardstock.

For my background I went to my go to thing to do which is use Distress Inks. I pulled a couple pieces of Tim Holtz Watercolour Paper and first I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean for the sky and then used Mustard Seed and Fossilised Amber for the Sand. I then flicked some water onto the sandy piece to give it some more texture and then for the sky background, I took my favourite stencil from Tim Holtz, the Rays stencil and placed it over top of my sky background. I then sprayed a ton of water over top of the stencil. I left it there for a little while and then pressed a cloth over top to mop up the water. When I pulled up the stencil it revealed a bleached look, I really like how it turned out. 

Now all my elements were done I could adhered my card together. I adhered my sky and sand pieces together using tape adhesive and then used foam tape to adhere my frame on. I then also used foam tape to adhere all the kids in a line on my card as well. I used the 'Sending You Sunshine' sentiment from the Summer Friends stamp set and stamped it into the middle of my card with black ink. 

To finish up I added Clear Droplets around my card and adhered my panel to a card base.
