Life’s a Beach

Or not so much, if you look at the thermometer, it’s rather chilly this weekend.  I actually have a card I put together as a thank you. 

The background took all of 30 seconds and a few Copic Markers.  The bottom is E37, to look like sand along a beach.  Then I airbrushed layers of blues, starting with the lightest, B21 and layered horizontally increasing the colors, B23, B26, B29. 

The palm tree is a retired Spellbinders™ die template.  I cut the trunk from thin balsa wood, trimmed it with scissors so I just had the trunk, then used E37 to color through like a stencil.  The leaves and grass are Core’dinations paper, cut/embossed and sanded.  I used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares (I cut the smaller sizes in half while still on the backing) to fit on the back side of the trunk.

For the Labels, I stamped the Thank You, then lined up a Classic Oval to cut/emboss,  then airbrushed B24 while the paper was still in the die template, so I had the while border.  Then I did the same with the Labels Six, but airbrushed with B21 and used the 3D Foam Squares to elevate the Thank You die cut.

I added some sprigs of grass with G07.  I should have made several of these, it was super quick and fun!

Happy Mothers Day!
