I knew that I wanted to create something summery and beachy so I grabbed my Scuba Newton and Purr-maid Newton stamp sets and started brainstorming. I thought a slimline would be extra fun so I die cut a scalloped panel with the Slimline Frames and Portholes set and inked it up with distress oxides in blueprint sketch, salty ocean and peacock feathers and spritzed it with water. Then I cut a white panel with the porthole portion and set both of those aside to work on images.

I chose my images from the 2 sets, inked them up and started coloring with my copics. Once those were complete I cut them out with the coordinating dies and arranged them on my card to make sure I had enough to fill in the scene.

Once everything was laid out, I used liquid glue to adhere it to either the white panel or the inked panel. After everything was in place, I flipped the white panel over and covered it with foam squares. Using this as a guide, I lined up my sentiment, stamped and heat embossed it before adhering the panel down. I took the whole thing then and added it to a 3.5×8.5 inch card base with foam tape for extra dimension.

Then I moved on to finishing touches. I used unicorn Stickles on the purr-maids seashells and Wink of Stella glitter brush on both of their tails. Then I added some glossy accents to the kitty noses, insides of the seashells in the scenes and the fins on the fish for just a little shine here and there.

I just love the colors and how bright and happy this turned out! They just make you smile.
