Summer Fun

Here's a card for a hot summery day:


I chose Beach Tilda for this project as she's just the right size to sit on her majestic sand castle! I simply used cardstock for this project; layering it multiple times for the sky, water, clouds and beach.

For a textured sandy surface, I added a solid piece of Scor-Tape (cutting down one of the sheets to size) to a beige cardstock piece. I then pressed a mixture of white and yellow flocking powders onto the exposed tape - Viola! It worked perfectly! The wave whitecaps were added with dimensional white paint.

I printed the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut cloud shapes, stacking them and adding dimension with foam tape.

I finished off the beach scene with a beachball and starfish from the same Recollections sticker package.

Here are the Copic colours I used for Tilda (I used darker than normal skin tones for a slight sun-kissed effect):

Skin: E00, E01, E02
Hair: YR21, YR23, YR24, YR 31
Bathing suit: C1, C3, R81, R83, R85

With the temps at 34 to 36C this week, I definitely WANT to be joining Tilda at the Beach!
