Cowabunga Dude! MFTWSC77, LRSBC5


Guess what came in the mail today?  My VIP package from My Favorite Things!!!!  Whooo Hoooo.   And just in time for me to make this weeks card for the sketch challenge.  I am so in Love with these cute P.I. images.  I used Shoreline by American Craft's paper, which I had waiting for these cute stamps to come in.  S.U. Orange, PTI Sunrise, and white.  I airbrushed the strip of paper for the wave as well as the back ground for the surfer dude.  I used Loves Rubber Stamps Pinterest photo as my inspiration of colors.  And here is the final result.....


The little drop of water is actually a wing die from the MFT die-namic Contempo Cage, which I swear I will use on of these days, lol.  I was digging and searching for some beachy and thought a drop coming out of a wave was pretty good.  I used the MFT's wave die-namic as well.  And I paper pierced the surf board with another sheet of paper from the Shoreline paper 6X6 pack.  Oh and I love the new sentiment strips die-namics that were part of the VIP package, I stamped the cowabunga on one of them. 

Lasty, I added some brads and I have to tell you, I am the worlds worst at thinking about something after I have already glued it down, lol.   So ever so carefully and gently, I pulled back the top, used my trusty Tim Holtz paper piercer and then struggled with these big ol' brads from my stash, (but probably from one of the basic grey lines.)  I had to finally get out my Crop-O-Dial to punch some holes big enough to fit these brads.  I love all my toys!  They help me out so much.  I will need to add some Scor-Tape to keep it down now, but that's okay,  I like it better with the brads. 

Copic List: BG000, BG02, BG07, BG06, N6, N5, N4, N3, E31, E33, Y8, Y6, Y4, E00, E000, E0000, E21, E93. 

Thanks so much for looking and for your wonderful comments.
