Make It Monday Challenge

I made this card yesterday and am posting it on Make It Monday.

Is this a summer card or what? The inside reads. "Don't forget the sunscreen!" For the water/sky I used the Fiskars Wave crimper. I sprayed it with my homemade glittermist which you can see if you zoom in on the photo. Next I used a Fiskars Wave ruler to tear the shape of the sand and embossed with a Fiskars embossing plate. I inked the edge of the sand for a more dramatic effect. The sun and the "Fun in the Sun" sentiment were from the same $1 bin stamps at Michaels. I used CTMH ink to stamps the sun and sentiment and added Glossy accents to the sun's glasses as well as added Stickles to the sun's rays. The palm tree was on a different $1 stampI and inked the image with Uchida markers and fussy cut it. I added the Copic colored digital image, used foam dots on the back and finally added the handrawn "birds" in the sky.
