A Day At The Beach

Good Morning! Today I have a super fun summertime card that fits into the current challenge which is Distress Maniacs. I used a few different distress inks on my card. Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean distress inks were blended together with a sponge applicator to create the ocean water. I then sprayed some water onto the paper to create a subtle texture. The waves were created by tearing the paper unevenly. Tea dye distress ink was applied to the edges of the sandpaper, pattern paper, and cardstock.

These penguins are enjoying a typical fun summer day of fishing and relaxing at the beach. They even had time to create a sand igloo! The penguins and igloo are from the Critters in the Snow stamp set. I used Critters of the Sea for the whale, fish, crab, and shells. The fishing pole is the drum stick from Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum and the balloon string is from Admit One.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog! Have a wonderful day!
