Here is my summery card:9016W. Sandcastle", then stamped "4109W Sand Dollar" on the background piece to give it some subtle pattern. Check out those letters!! I'm just in love with how they turned out. Here's a close up:
I colored a strip of scrap white card stock with a brown Spectrum Noir marker, then swiped some aqua mist ink directly from the ink pad below the brown. I sponged on a bit of medium blue to tone down the aqua and add "waves" with a darker blue marker and a white gel pen. Then I taped my letter dies in place and die cut them from the strip. I also die cut the letters from white card stock 3 times and layered all four sets together to create some depth. Did I mention that I love how it turned out? It's so fun.
