  • CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Espresso. Vellum

This is a thank you card to my in-laws for an invite to vacation in Kauai with them. It is a CASE of a Zindorf scene with a little twist. This is the link to Zindorf post on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/346284658824392500/

After sponging and brayering the sky, ocean and land, I stamped the foliage in Memento Black and hilighted with White gel pen. I stamped the flower from Peaceful Petals in Memento Black on the vellum (heat set or wait a long time to dry because it smears easily!). Then fixed the vellum over the beach scene with brads and mounted with white, and then espresso embossed with square lattice EF.
