Wish You Were Here

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a card using a sweet stamp set from Newton's Nook.

These cute kitties are from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp set.  I colored the images with copics and then fussy-cut them.  I diecut the sand and ocean using a Lawn Fawn die and then applied distress inks.  I flicked some brown acrylic paint on the sand and added flicks of water to the ocean.  I stenciled the clouds with a stencil from My Favorite Things and then added a sun that I diecut using a Lawn Fawn die.   I used foam tape on the kitties and sun to add some dimension to my card.  I applied Glossy Accents to the kitty's sunglasses to make them shiny.  I'm not sure exactly where these kitties are vacationing, but I'd love to join them lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Hugs, Anita
