Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Life’s a Beach


Hello, I am back today with a card for the latest board over at Tic Tac Toe. My card goes with the center row of Die Cuts, Free and Bright Colors. I had the bright blue and yellow pieces left over from a card I posted a month or so ago sitting on my desk and I didn’t want them to go to waste. I made them using the smooshing technique on watercolored paper.

Card Details: The background was made with the smooshing technique and inks on watercolored paper. The palm, penguin, and sentiment are from MFT. I used foam tape to pop up the center of the card for some added interest. I colored with Copics. I also used white paint for a bit of splatter. The small postal die is from Hero Arts.

I hope however you choose to spend your day, it’s a good one! Nanc’
