Soak Up The Sun

Hi everyone! Today over on the La-La Land Crafts blog we are creating cards with a "Tropical" theme. Thinking back to when I visited Hawaii and the turtles that swam in the waters inspired me to create this card: 

I made a slimline card featuring the adorable penguin from the Just Chill stamp set. (All products and links are below) I stamped, embossed and colored her up using Copic markers. For the scalloped layer I used the second to largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles die and did partial die-cutting technique.

Using Distress Oxide Inks and the Summer Is Here Layering Stencil I created an ocean background. I made a sandy shore layer to stamp and emboss the sentiment. The turtle was fun to create. I colored it using Copic markers and added the eyes using a black gel pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card and that I inspired you to create today. Have a great day :)
