It is an exciting day for my family! My son, John is marrying his beautiful fiancé today! I am so happy for them. I am home in Indiana with my family. It is so wonderful to have special time with all of them.
It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! I am the hostess this week! I love summer water fun and I thought it would be fun to create cards with this theme. The challenge is Clean and Simple so remember to limit your layers and embellishments.
My card is created on a white card base. I used an old favorite stamp set Gorgeous Grunge to create this fun background. I used a variety of distress inks on watercolored paper with the stamps and created the sky and sand. I spritzed it with water and this fabulous background came to life. I loved it! I trimmed it with Avery Elle Wonky Border dies. The little elephant is from one of my favorite new stamp sets Beach Day from Neat and Tangled. I colored the elephant with Copic Markers. The sentiment is cut four times using the Winnie and Walter Cutaways dies. I used Chocolate Chip for the base and 3 layers of Pool Party card stock to create the sentiment. I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents for shine. I also added Glossy Accents to the beach ball. The sun is cut from a piece of watercolored paper that I stamped after using distress inks to create this color for the sun. Clear sparkling sequins were added for shine.
Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
