Sun, Sand & Surf

This is the Day 40 - Spring Break Challenge from 365 Cards. Check them out - its a fabulous place for some inspiration! I've been super busy with albums for clients and class projects(WHEW), but needed a little time out and couldn't help but jump on this challenge. I'm a sucker for the Beach, Ocean, Sun, Sand & Surf.
So, the challenge was to use the Sun, Sand & Surf to inspire you. And after all this cold, snowy Michigan weather, one can only imagine how inspiring the thought of Sun, Sand and Surf can be. So, here's my card - nothing like the little fat cat in the hammock (This looks like our Jaba da Cat, minus the fruity beverage ; )!
Stamp: Penny Black
Technique: MCPT w/Prism Penciles & Gamsol
Paper: Stamped on White Cardstock
Did a bit of inking to extend the water & sand across the card. Inked clouds in blue sky.
Added stickles to the water, tropical beverage and shells.
The palm tree tops and the crab at the bottom are popped up on dots & layered for dimension. I really enjoyed making this card!
I hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the Easter holiday for those of you that will be celebrating. I'll be in my studio for the next few days working on client projects, but I hope to have a chance to share a few of them with you very soon!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful Easter!
Happy Craftin'!
