I have two cards to share today that were created as part of StampNation's awesome California Vacation which has ended, but never really ends because their challenges are always there to play along with, and the encouragement from fellow members will always be there!
So here are two cards created for their challenges last week. This first one was to create a card with a beach theme. I created this card using some distress inks and a stamp set from Inky Antics' Honey Pop collection.
The water, sky and clouds were created using a Simon Says Stamp set with clouds and some distress inks and stains. The sand was cardstock embossed with some holographic embossing powder from Ranger. My critters were paper pieced onto the card and colored with Copic markers.
And now the inside . . .
Honey Pop paper makes it all pop!
My second card for today was inspired by Alcatraz, hence the black stripes.
For this card I used supplies from a Studio Calico kit. I cut strips of paper to cover a tag that was included in the kit. I love how this one turned out. Black and white stripes are an amazing accent.
As I always say, I hope you find some time to create over the weekend.
