Double D - Signs of Summer

 

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and our theme is:
 
 SIGNS OF SUMMER
 
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .

 

 A definite sign of Summer is going to the beach OR maybe a Tropical Island! LOL  I still keep hounding hubby about going back [directly] to Bora Bora & Tahiti ... after Covid is behind us of course.  That is what was on my mind today while creating this card.

I've created my background using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks and large sponge daubers.  Other than the blue for the sky, I've simply used the ink that remained in the sponge daubers.  My island silhouette is by Taylored Expressions and called 'Beach Border'.

 

 The seabirds came from an old Inkadinkado 'Coastal' stamp set (#97521).

 Inkadinkado Nautical Beach Clear Stamp Set, 13pc

 I punched a circle from masking medium and placed it on my white card stock before beginning my inked background.

 

Here's a peek at the inside of my card ...
