Surf's Up

Well I started the day with good news I have been been chosen as one of the top 3 picks at Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog . I created this card for the Sir Stampalot Challenge Lazy Hazy Days of Summer and the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog Week 62  Special Monthly challenge Criss-Cross card.

To create this card I used Stamps: Magnolia Surf Edwin, Surfboard, Beach fence, Tussock.  Cardstock: White hammered, teal, orange.  Papers: DP papers from own stash.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Desert Sand, Bamboo Leaves.  Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stormy Sky.  Colourings: Copic markers Skin E000/E00/E11/R20.  Hair E29/E25/E31.  Surfboards BG72/BG75/BG10/B21/B23/B24.  Fence C1/C3.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Dies: Sizzix embossing folder Summer Fun.  Provo Craft Cuttlebug die star fish.  Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots.  Embellishments: Deco Art Glamour Dust Crystal.

Hints and Tips
To make the embossed waves stand out, I used Co-ordinations card and sanded it down then I added some glitter to the edge of the waves.
