CASology Week 137 - Tropical
AAAAhhhhhh - when I hear the word "tropical" I think of Maui - trade winds blowing, waves crashing on the sand, soft sand, sun .... yup, my idea of paradise. This was the inspiration for my card.
I used this die set to cut out the three squares from a piece of white cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
I used my teflon sheet; added splotches of these three distress inks and spritzed with water. I placed the right edge of the front of my A2 card into the ink and let dry. I adhered the die cut panel on top of the inked card.
I used this stamp set that I purchased from a scrapbooking store in Maui.
I inked the three stamps with distress markers. I stamped into the "openings" created by the die cuts.
What I noticed is that my card doesn't lay flat because of the water/ink. I've placed it under some weight - not sure if it will flatten out anymore.
Thanks for visiting
