Your Next Stamp Summer Fun Kickoff

Hello fellow card makers.

Today is the months design team dare with Your Next Stamp. Our theme this month is Summer Fun Kickoff! and we are creating project around the fun of summer. Visit the Your Next Stamp blog to check out with the rest of the design team came up with. (CLICK HERE!) 

I used a piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock, and stenciled the mini clouds stencil with Distress Oxide ink in salty ocean.  Then I used the faber castel cement to create the sandy base where my adorable penguin is playing in the sand.

The Penguin and sand toys are from "Waddles Beach Fun" from Your Next Stamp.  The images were stamped with MFT hybrid ink in Cement Gray.  I then colored the images with Derwent Intense pencils and used my Tombo Blender pen, in combination with a water brush to smooth out the image, resembling a no-line watercolor look.

The images are popped up with 3M foam tape.  The sun is die cut from the Your Next Stamp "Beach Day" and cut from Stampin Up! "So Saffron" cardstock.  The sun was also popped up with 3M Foam Tape.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the background using Distress Oxide ink in Faded Jeans, and the stamp is also from the "Waddles Beach Fun" set.  The front panel was then popped up with white craft foam and secured with double-sided tape.  The panel was then affixed to a fog cardstock base from Simon Says Stamp.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Make sure you stop by the Your Next Stamp blog (CLICK HERE!) to see all the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the design team.
