I Wish You Were Here

I Wish You Were Here

My Card. . . .

Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is Inspired by a Song.
I was inspired by Incubus 'Wish You Were Here' and used the Lawn Fawn Life is Good stamp set.

For my background I cut a panel from watercolor paper using the largest Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die, which is conveniently 4.25x5.5

I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass to cover my entire panel, then die cut the bottom portion with Lawn Fawn Ocean Waves border dies. I then covered the top sky portion of my panel with a mix of Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean. Then I basically did a die cut inlay and placed all the pieces on the front of my card

 To create some glittery waves I used the waves stamped with versa mark and heat embossed with Ranger Holographic embossing powder. I love how that turned out and next time I would do this step before doing the die cutting.

I die cut the little island from sandpaper for that sandy look and feel. I stamped the palm tree, crab and shell all in Simon Says Stamp black ink and colored with Zig Clean Color brush markers. I put some clear wink of stella and glossy accents over the shell, a few white highlights on the crab with a white jelly roll pen and used foam tape to adhere the palm tree and crab to the island.

I found these great felt clouds at Michael's and had been dying to use them! I cut one in half to use on the edges of the card and applied some stickles the edges. I took a line from the song to use as my sentiment and cut it from adhesive vinyl. For the finishing touch I added some doodlebug sprinkles, love these things SO much.

 I like this card  a lot! It's not what I originally pictured in my head but I think that it turned out great!
