Summer Breeze makes me feel fine.
Playing along with a challenge at Splitcoast inspired by a summertime song.  
It gave me a chance to play with some of these stencils from A Colorful Life Designs.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock, placed it onto my Waffle Flower Stencil mat and laid the Surf's Up stencil over it.  I inked up the sunshine with some Mustard Seed and a hint of Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink.  I set that aside to dry.
  • Next, I pulled out another piece of cardstock and carefully tore the edge, trying to give it a jagged, wavy looking edge.
  • I laid that piece onto my stencil mat and inked it all over with some Tumbled Glass DOX ink.  I laid the Bubble Release stencil over the inked panel and rubbed on some more Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a heavier hand to add the bubbles.
  • I removed the stencil and splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I stamped the sentiment over the sun and then glued the stenciled sun to a white cardstock base.  
  • I added foam tape to the water piece I had stenciled and placed it over the sunshine which helped to pop it up, giving more interest to an otherwise flat card.
  • I stamped the whale, die cut it out and coloured using some grey Copic markers.  I popped that just under the waterline.
  • I glued it all onto a white A2 card base.

Here are the stencils I used:
