Inky Paws Challenge #226 ~ Summer Theme Challenge Reminder

Hello there crafty friend!
There's still time to play along with the Inky Paws Challenge #226 - Summer Theme Challenge! You have until this coming Friday, July 5th to get your entries in for this fun challenge and a chance to win a $20 store credit to Newton's Nook Designs!

I am loving this theme! I prefer Fall and Winter myself, but I do love beach stamps! And beach stamps are perfect for Summer!

I stamped the cute car from the Beach Bound Stamp Set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. And then I had a blast coloring it up with Copic markers. I went with a classic red. I tried to coordinate it with the red in the papers. I think it works pretty well! Once I was happy with my coloring I die cut the car using the coordinating Beach Bound Die Set.

Here's the list of the Copic markers I used:
Car: R20, R14, R37
Windows: B0000, B000, B00
Bumpers / Door Handle / Roof Rack: N0, N1
Tires: N1, N2, N4, N6
Surfboard: YG11, YG23

I paired up the Beach Bound car with the awesome Summertime 6x6 Paper Pad. I had so much fun mixing and matching the papers that I die cut using the die from the A2 Card Layout Die Set. I also die cut the frame from Stampers Select White Card Stock from Papertrey Ink. That left me with extra white pieces so I made a little sandy hill for the car using the center white piece. I die cut it using the Land Borders Die Set and then I blended a bit of brown ink on the top without actually adding any ink to my blending brush because I didn't want it to be dark.

 All of my layers are centered on a 5-1/2 x 4-1/4" card front of Tempting Turquoise Card Stock from Stampin' Up and then adhered to a white A2 top fold card base turned on its side for a landscape card. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and mat it with a scrap of the same turquoise card stock. No foam tape for this one... just adhered all the layers directly on the card.

Now it's your turn to get your paws inky with your Newton's Nook Designs products and create a project with a Summer theme. Be sure to link up to the Inky Paws Challenge! Can't wait to see your projects!
