On the Beach

Hello hope you have had a wonderful weekend.  This card was created for the One Stop Craft Challenge.  Challenge 80 Summer Breeze.  I was quite pleased with this challenge as I had just purchased this Penny Black stamp at the Happy Stampers Northwest May Festival, so it was a good excuse to use it.

To create this card I used Stamps: Penny Black On the Beach.  Cardstock: White hammered, green, brown, teal.  Papers: DP Doodlebug Designs Inc. Summer assortment, pink, green.  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Cottage Ivy.  Colouring: Copic  markers C3, C5, R20.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Papermania blue shimmer chalk.  Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Deckled Rectangles.  Sizzix Sizzlits Hibiscus flower, Hawaiian leaf.  Sizzix Large Original Palm tree.  Cuttlebug embossing folder Spiders web.  Embellishments:  Deco Art Glamour dust crystal. 

Hints and Tips
The trunk on the palm tree was given extra dimension by embossing it using the Cuttlebug embossing folder Spiders web.  I then rubbed Memento Rich Cocoa ink over the embossing.
