CC Fun in the Sun

YAY! My CHA projects are done and I have a card to share with you today! This fun card was inspired by several I had seen on-line where they put surf board images into torn paper representing sand. I wish I would have had some fine sand paper, cuz I think this would have made fun "sand".

I paper pieced Cutting Cafe's Assorted Surf Boards with My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky line. These fun bold and bright colors made fun and funky surf boards! "Fun in the Sun" was colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and is from Cutting Cafe's Summer Fun printable stamp set.
The "waves" are actually a woodgrain from Happy Go Lucky and I thought it would make great wavy water. The clouds are from My Mind's Eye's Lime Twist Fly a Kite line. At first I had the water all behind the surf boards, but it made it look like the sky. Aaron told me it needed some sky, so I cut it on one of the wavy "lines" and added the sky above it. Love it! Glad I have that kid around! Ü
