Surf's Up!

Surf's Up!

Happy Friday! Cathy here with a fun Summer card using the new Catch a Wave stamp set.
 
This little dude is ready to hang ten!
I was in the mood for a clean and simple design on this one, so I started by die-cutting a background panel from white cardstock and inking a waves stencil with Tumbled Glass distress ink.
 
I die-cut a circle from white cardstock and drew the beach lines with a Copic multi-liner pen and then masked the beach area before inking the ocean behind it with Broken China distress ink. I inked another waves stencil with Peacock Feathers distress ink.
 
I masked off the ocean and inked the sand with Old Paper distress ink and added some shading with Copic E44,E43 and E42.
 
I used a Copic multi-liner to add a few different elements to the surfboards before coloring up the images with Copics.
 
For a little extra tropical vibe, I used a leaf and hibiscus die from my stash and colored them with Copics.
 
I really love making Summer themed cards and this stamp set is SO cute and fun! 
 
Hope you make some time to get crafty this weekend!

For this card, I started out with a card panel and did some ink blending. I used a couple shades of green distress inks (Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint)...
