Today on Splitcoaststampers is a Color Challenge featuring Stampin’ Up! Colors of Soft Sky, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and Crumb Cake. I created a beach scene card for the challenge. The scene features several dies from Impression Obsession, Marianne Design, Frantic Stamper Inc., Cottage Cutz, and Spellbinders.

7-12-16 UPDATE: This card was selected as Splitcoaststampers FAVORITE for last week’s Color Challenge, CC590!!
To create the card, I used a 4-1/2″ square piece of Neenah Solar White Card Stock and sponged on the Crumb Cake sand, Marina Mist ocean, and Soft Sky sky. Because I wanted to use a surfer, I wanted to make the ocean seem a little rough; therefore, I used Liquid Applique and spread it along the shore and into the water.
After cutting out all of the die cuts that I wanted to include on the card from the solar white paper (see list of supplies for the names of the dies), I used Copic Sketch Markers to color each one, and strategically place each cutout onto the scene. After finishing that, I cut two Spellbinders Nestabilities Fairmont Labels dies, adhered them together with foam tape, and attached them around the scene. I then added the flipflops and shells around the labels. The scene was attached to a Wild Wasabi card base.
I really like how the card turned out! I hope you enjoyed it, and will take time to provide me feedback!
