Enjoying Paradise

Happy Monday!  I was coloring the images with Copics from this new NBUS set yesterday when several challenges popped into mind, resulting in this easy summer card.



Took a Bristol stitched rectangle panel from my stash and stamped the penguin and palm tree with Archival black ink.  Watercolored the tropical scene with Zig markers and a watercolor brush.  Used a Soft Suede SU! marker to add texture to the sand and a white gel pen to add cresting waves in the water.



Die cut ‘enjoy’ from a scrap of Bristol paper twice and once from black.  Ombré coloured one of the white pieces with Zigs, then stacked and offset.  Mounted the panel to a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to the die cut sentiment to finish.



And that was it.  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day!
