CCC #38... Surf's Up!

Hello friends!!  Tuesday has rolled around and that means a brand new cue word has rolled around, too.   Loved all the beautiful "hope" related cards that everyone created for the challenge!   This week's cue word is "up" and we are being sponsored by Lawn Fawn stamps.  All the deets can be found here



 
I made a very masculine card using a monochromatic color scheme for my card.  I had recently gotten some washi tapes from  ChickyDoddle.   One of the rolls is a grey with a polka dot pattern on it.  I decided to pair that tape up with a couple of images from the Verve "Learning to Sail" set.  I laid down a couple of strips of the washi tape to start off my card and then layered the pieces of card stock.  The light grey (PTI's Soft Stone) piece was partially embossed with my Swiss Dot EF for some interest and then the sentiment was stamped in black.  The surfboard was stamped twice on white cardstock and trimmed out.  A bit of washi tape was added to one surfboard and that portion trimmed out and added to the other surfboard.  I then colored the surfboard with Copic markers and colored the stars using a Jelly Roll pen and adhered it to the sentiment piece.   The layout is based on the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

Thanks for stopping by.... I cannot wait to see what up related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan and our guest designer, Dena!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI:  White and Soft Stone, SU! Basic Grey; Stamps:  Verve Learning to Sail; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Washi tape:  ChickyDoddle; EF:  Swiss Dot
