Hello crafty friends!
It’s time for the new challenge at The Male Room Craft Challenge Blog! This fortnight’s challenge theme is Surf’s Up 🙂 Super fun right, after last Christmas in July challenge, this one put me right back into the summer mode.
The card I made for today’s post is a bit different from my usual cards – this one is patterned papers only – no stamping.
As I was getting ready to make the card for this challenge, I realized I do not own a single surf themed stamp or die set, but what I did find was a pack of Hawaiian themed scrapbook paper (back from my scrapbooking days).
After looking through the paper pack, I choose several pages with images of surf boards, cars, sentiments and one for the sky.
I fussy cut the elements and darkened the edges with distress ink in Walnut Stain.
I used Sunny Studio Catch a Wave dies to create the waves – I added snow marker and embossed the caps.
For the sand, I used a piece of kraft cardstock, and added some splatter with Walnut Stain distress ink mixed with water, then once it was dry, added white dots with white gel pen.
I adhered all the layers to the card base, popping smaller surf boards and cars with foam tape.
To finish the card, I inked all edges with the same Walnut Stain Distress ink. I love the way this card turned out – it reminds me of the retro surf postcards 🙂
I really hope you enjoyed this post and decide to join us for this fun challenge!
Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you Happy Crafting!
