Stay Cool and Catch a Wave this Summer! by Jessie

 Greetings everyone! It's me again, Jessie Scott (@chevy.scott on IG) here to share a fun light up card with Gerda Steiner Designs products!
Today I have another fun collaboration with Pear Blossom Press products to share. This week I'm feeling super hot here in the desert and I'm wishing for the beach! Thanks to this little duckie, I was able to "Stay Cool" haha! Let's make this card with the Catch a Wave stamp set!

The background is made using a hand-made mask from printer paper that I cut to match the curves I wanted for this beach scene. 
I ink blended the bottom with Distress Ink Antique Linen and Tea Dye, spritzed with water and then splattered with some gold water color. The blue is Salvaged Patina blended into a lighter Tumbled Glass and then a yellow glow out from the sun with Mustard Seed. I splattered the sky with a blue shimmer watercolor from Kuretake Pearl Colors set. Love how bright this blend looks! I want to go to this beach haha!
Here's an ink blending video:
Images were colored with my Olo Markers.  I'm still in love with them! 
Here's a coloring video:
For the sentiment to fit in the sun I CUT IT! (I know! I know!) That's the beauty of stamps though! You can always mount it back to a block just the way it was. Don't be afraid.
For the rest of the card details and how to make this sun LIGHT UP, venture over to the companion post on my blog today!
Here's the finished card!  I also have a full process video on my blog.

See you again soon!
