Day 4 with Vera

Hello, Hello, Hello!

I hope your Thursday is looking better than mine. We have been having storms all week and today we are in for another round :(

Today Vera and I are using Let's Chill from Hero Arts. This is such a fun set, it is so summer :) I hope you guys are getting as inspired as I am from this week's posts. Vera is so awesome, her cards are always knockouts!

Pretty simple card today.
I started with a 2 x 41/2 inch piece of white. I inked it with antique linen, brushed corduroy, vintage photo, and walnut stain. I was going for a beach color.  I adhered it flat to a white card base.

I stamped the tree, beach ball, and crab on a scrap piece of white. I colored them with markers (not distress inks, crazy right?!) and fussy cut them out. I just love the hot pink crab, such fun :) I adhered them using various layers of foam adhesive for dimension.  Once they were adhered I added black rhinestones for the crab's eyes. I had to cut them off when fussy cutting :)

The sentiment was stamped in jet black archival ink. I added stardust stickles and glossy accents to complete.

Thanks for coming to visit. I'm heading over to see what Vera made, I hope you'll follow along!!
