Let's Go Surfing

One of my favorite memories of my time in Hawaii was when my BFF, Hedy, came to visit.  Our mission was to have a picnic at sunset on a different beach each evening at sunset.  I made this card to commemorate this special time.

To create the background sunset I used the powdered chalk colors: Dizzy, Sky, Peach, Gitty and Perky.  You can find all powdered chalks by Stamp N Plus HERE.  As I've mentioned before, I use Staples matte photo paper with the Chalk-AH-Lots.  This paper really seems to enhance the beauty of the chalks.  The surfboards were cut with a Spellbinders die, I embossed them to create the design on the boards and used the die as a stencil to create the outlines.  The tropical leaves were cut with a die by Joy! Crafts.  I added some silk flowers and Flower Soft centers.

Surf's Up!  Grab your board and head to the beach...Paulette

  1. Paulette, this is stunning. The sunset is gorgeous and the surfboards with that beautiful embossing look amazing next to the sky. The flowers and leaves frame the opening in such a striking way. The vibrant background paper and matting provide lovely contrast to the scene. Awesome!
