Summer Holiday ......

This is how Summer should really be .......

Made this card made for the Less Is More Challenge Blog whose theme is 'Your Perfect Holiday'

I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card base and die-cut a slightly smaller matt with a stitched edge die.  I then stamped the main image (Inkadinkado) with Archival black ink.  This was then sponged with Distress inks in yellows, blues and oranges after making a mask for the surfer and board. Some of the wave tips were highlighted with a white pigment pen. It was then matted on blue card.

The sentiment 'Holiday Hello - from me to you' (Stampin'Up) was stamped in Versafine black ink onto white card which was then die-cut with a circular die.  This was lightly sponged with the same Distress ink colours.  A black cabochon was placed in the centre.

The card was then assembled with foam pads under the white matt and the circular sentiment.

Happy Summer .......
