Fun in the Sun Post Card


Sending warm greetings from the beautiful beaches of Hawaii!
 You can not help but be inspired when visiting such an exotic location. 
This card was inspired by the vintage art work observed on the islands. Scene building cards are a great way to create small pieces of art to share with your friends and family or to remember a special event.

   Gelli Arts Printing Plate
   Distress tool
   Foam tape
   Alcohol markers
   Black ink

Use the Gelli plate with shades of blue paint create the water/sky background. Using multiply layers of paint, create a wave like action for the ocean part of the scene. 

Stamp the palm leaves only from the palm tree stamp in black ink in the fore ground. Next stamp the mountains and sail boat on white card stock.  Color in with shades of gray using alcohol markers. Scan and cut images to be adhered to the layer. Distress the edges of the painted/stamped layer to create the vintage look. Using foam tape attach this layer to a blue layer then tape this to the white card base.
