Hello and Welcome Summer!!! This fun card I created was totally inspired by Summer, Sun and Fun!
I used a very sophisticated tool to create it.... called "my fingers" hahaha.... I finger paint almost all of it with Oxide Inks. I am very happy with the result.
CARD DETAILS: I started by die cutting all the pieces of the oh so Fabulous MFT Beach Scene Builder, and here is when things became fancy... I used Distress Oxide inks and my fingers to create the cool look. I smear a little of oxide ink to my craft mat, added a little water and started painting the piece with my fingers I used Oxide Inks in colors Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber for the sunset, after I added the color I sprayed the piece with a little bit of water. For the ocean I used oxide ink in color Faded Jeans and for the palm tree Cracked Pistachio with the same process. For the sand I used Walnut Stain oxide ink. I wanted to keep the same look to all the card so I used a small brush to paint the penguin of the cute MFT Penguins in Paradise Stamp Set with regular black soot distress ink.
To create the wave look in the water I used a small brush with Avery Elle Pure White Pigment Ink only on the shore, I added the clouds and frame the hole scene with the Avery Elle Postage Stamp Elle-ments I added Distress Oxide Broken China to the card base for more color.
I love the sentiment, you can send this card to a friend and make Summer plans. I hope you have a great week and give this fancy idea of finger painting with Oxide Inks a try... if you don't like to get inky just use a brush!
