Avery Elle Life's A Beach Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing with you a project that I made using some Avery Elle products. I recently ordered the Avery Elle Beside the Sea stamp set and I could not wait to make this card. I had it all planned out in my head. You know when you have the best idea and you just have to create it, that was this card for me. I wanted to make this sand more than life! lol.

First I started with my background. I masked of the bottom portion of my card front and inked on some VersaMagic Wheat chalk ink. While it was still masked, I loaded up my Ranger marker spritzer with Antique Linen Distress ink marker and Frayed Burlap marker and spritzed some sand on top of the inked area to create sand. It looks so cool! I waited a bit to let that part dry before I masked off the sky portion of my background. I used the MFT mini cloud stencil to ink blend some clouds with VersaMagic Aegean Blue chalk ink. After my background was dry, I cut it down with a Mama Elephant Femme Frames stitched rectangle die. I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I stamped my images with Momento Tuxedo Black ink because I want to color with my Copics. I used a rainbow of colors to add life to my cabana and kite images. Below you will see a color map listing all of the Copic colors used on this project. Once they were cut out, I popped them up with some foam tape onto my background. To finish it off, I mounted the panel onto some craft foam adhered with 1/2" Scor tape and placed it on a Neenah 100 lb. card base.

Images of my project, a Copic color map, a link to my YouTube video making this card, and links to the supplies I used are below.
