Day 5 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Flip-Flops Card
Happy Tuesday everyone! I know...I missed Monday. I was planning on doing a blog post but I got up later than I wanted to and ....
and Bandit (the new one) ...
had to make a visit to the vet. Her to get her nails trimmed and him to get his shots!! She hates the vet and he seemed to be having a great time. LOL. He is also getting along great with all the other dogs and I am very happy that they took to him. AND...he has stopped his "happy peeing". That was not fun.
Today I am showing a really easy card I made for Day 5 of The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Is anyone else following along with Kathy or joining in? I would love to know. I used an image from Northwoods Rubber Stamps of flip-flops that I have wanted to color for a long time and I used a phrase from a Unity set that I felt went perfect with it. Since Spring has sprung here and it's getting very hot....and I live in flip-flops most days, I loved making this card.
I started by stamping the flip-flops and the phrase from Unity onto a piece of white cardstock, 3.5" x 4.75" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Then I pulled out some Sharpie and Bic fine tipped markers and colored in the flip-flops. I also used Copic E000 Pale Fruit Pink for the "sand" around the flip-flops.
Then I pulled out the Artist Paper Pix 6" x 6" pad from Paper House and found this sheet of paper I liked because it looked like bubbles or water to me. I cut a piece of this paper, 4.25" x 5.5" and adhered it to the card front.
And lastly, I adhered the piece with the flipflops on it onto a piece of dark blue cardstock, 5" x 3.75", which I then adhered to the card front. I printed "including flip-flops all summer long" on to a piece of white cardstock, which I adhered to the inside of the card.
That's it....DONE! The coloring took the longest but no longer than 15 minutes. The rest is about 5 minutes. Really. I hope you enjoyed this card and post.
