Addicted to CAS - Aloha

Wow, time is really flying by it is nearly the middle of June!  Lots of fun on the courts with the husband. Just the perfect time of year!

We have another challenge over at Addicted to CAS!  The theme for the challenge is Aloha!  Which is just the perfect way to welcome the summer!

Come on over and join in as you will have the opportunity to win a gift certificate to Stamplorations!

Here's my take on the theme...

I started by making my sand with distress ink, then masked that off and inked up my ocean, then sky. I stamped and colored the images using my copics, then decided to use the inlaid die technique to make it more mail friendly!

I added a bit of molding paste to the sand to give a bit of an impression of the water spraying.

I stamped the sentiment in the left corner and the little birds...and that was it!



  1. Beautiful beach scene, Susan! I love your CAS design, and your Copic coloring is just beautiful! Fabulous pairing of your stamp sets, too!
