Makin' Waves

Today I have a fun summer card for you! The image is an SVG file that I cut with my Silhouette. I cut him about 5" wide. My card base is white card stock folded to make a 5" X 6" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4 3/4" X 5 3/4".  My patterned paper is from my stash. The blue is cut at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2". The reverse side of the blue wave paper is the brown patterned paper. I took a strip of the brown pattern paper and tore it and then cut it to 4 3/4". I then inked the paper with some Tea Dye Distress Ink. For his glass, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to it. I then added some Stampendous Mica Pearlized fragments so his drink had some ice cubes in it. I also sprinkled some Distress Glitter in Rock Candy on the wet Glossy Accents. Once it dried I added a second coat to add some additional dimension to the glass. To add the look of sea spray I added some of the Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder in Shabby Blue. I stamped my sentiment in some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish my card I added some rhinestones and a small shell from my stash. To attach my surfer penguin I used an Action Wobble so he could "surf".
Thanks for visiting us today. I would love it if you could leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
