I made this card in honor of the “Coffee Loving Cardmakers” Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, of which Kat Scrappiness is a returning Super Sponsor.
For my card today, I wanted to create a relaxing beach scene, with a little bit of the “unexpected” going on in the background. Our “Lady Gnome” is quietly sipping on her iced coffee, unbeknownst to her that the giant wave behind her is about to crash onto shore. In the rarest of moments, “it’s always coffee time.” LOL!
For my ocean scene, I used a three-layer wave stamp set I had in my stash with three shades of blue distress inks. I created the sandy beach using two shades of brown distress ink and then splattered it with “Perfect Pearls.” I colored the gnome and the gnome add-ons with Spectrum Noir “Tri-blend” markers, adding some Nuvo “Crystal Glaze” on her iced coffee and sunglasses. The palm tree die was from my stash. The coffee sentiment, “It’s always coffee time” is from the Kat Scrappiness “Let’s Get Caffeinated” stamp set.
Stay Safe and Stay Home . ..
