Chillax .....

....  Hello again.  I woke up rather early today - something I often do at weekends, but struggle with during the week - go figure!!!  Anyway, I had a play and came up with a bright, clean and simple card for this week's CASology - CAS#137 challenge where the cue word is TROPICAL.  Here's what I made:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - My Island; Verve - Learning to Sail
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Peanut Brittle; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Fancy Pants Designs DP - Beach Babe; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


I actually had this card pretty much figured out when I saw what the challenge was, but only managed to make it this morning!  I stamped the surfboard several times and coloured them all with Copic markers - the colours coming from the design paper.  I stamped the palm trees in Versafine as it gives a really crisp image and added a few sand banks suggesting a beach.  I adhered the boards to the beach, stamped the sentiment chillax (love this word) and finished with a bright sun - which is sparkling!!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and on the white panel added another surfboard and a greeting.

It's always fun when you get to do lots of creative stuff at a weekend.  As well as crafting - we have a photo shoot with one of our favourite models today - Natalie.  She's always a blast to work with and we all get super photos - like these from a shoot this time last year:
