That Sun Is HOT!

Hi, today my entry is for the Speedy The Cat Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers. The challenge this week was to make your own embellishments. Besides the Sediment I used only two unaltered stamped images on this card. To make my own embellishments I used the large flower stamp from Theresa's set Aloha which can be found at Gina K Designs. I stamped my images onto Shrink Plastic embossed them and colored them with copics(as shown in the side picture). I made the sand dunes by tearing some of Gina K Designs PL Soft Sand, applying some Tim Holtz Old Paper Crackle paint, after drying I spread some TH Old Paper distressed Stickles over the crackle to make the dunes sparkle like sand in the sun. The palm tree is from Theresa's set as well. The surf board is from Rupa's set called Beach Bum also available at Gina K Designs.
I hope you like my final product. Thanks for stopping by.
