Hello (Life is Good)

I have a fun beachy card today featuring the Lawn Fawn Life is Good set. I created it with both the current Curtain Call Tropical Trip Challenge in mind as well as the Lawnscaping Texture Anyone? Challenge.

I first cut a square from water color paper using Spellbinders Nestabilities and then stamped the sand mound. I water colored the sand and the sky and then cut out the "water" from card stock using the Taylored Expressions Wave Border. I stamped the castle, starfish and crab onto Copics X-Press It, colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut out. I assembled the scene within the square, attaching the images with dimensional dots. After wrapping the frayed cord around the bottom, I stamped the seagull images and then attached the piece to the background panel. The background panel was cut from Bazzill Peanut Cluster card stock using the embossed piece from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 15 set and then inked around the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink. The sentiment came from the Just My Type set.

Products: Lawn Fawn stamps, Tim Holtz Water Color paper and ink, PTI, Bazzill and Core'dinations cs, My Favorite Things die and ink, Simon Says ink, Loew-Cornell Water Colors, Copic Markers
Copics: W00, E30, E33, E81, E84, R22, R24, R27

I wish I was on the beach right now. It is so very hot here the only thing I can do is stay in my house with the air conditioning going full blast. It doesn't make me very happy but I am sure Alabama Power loves it.
