For this card I tore scrapbook paper for the water and glued it onto white card stock. I then applied glue to the remainder of the card and then sprinkled it with sand. After that was dry I applied Glossy Accents over the water paper to give it the shine of water. While it was drying I folded brown paper and glued each fold down to create the trunk of the palm tree. I tied a piece of white string around the tree trunk and glued them in place. I then hand cut a few palm leaves and glued them in place. For the finishing touch I glued plastic swimsuits on the line.
This card was made by altering and re-sizing a picture. I mounted it on top of blue card stock. All of the blooms in the picture were then covered with Flower Soft. It's a great product. If you haven't used it yet you should try it. It really brings details of flowers to life.
For this card I painted white card stock with acrylics in two shades of turquoise, one solid color and one pearlized. I then used a cutting file from Silhouette for the little boy and his dog fishing. I pounced the edge with a gold stamp pad. I then used glossy Hodge Podge to stick it in place. I followed it up with another coat to seal it.
