can't resist a little summer fun ;)

Ok, dorky play on words for the title ;) I couldn't "resist!"
Now that I'm done cracking myself up, here's today's card-

This is a card we made at my Technique Tuesday class in July. The technique on this card is called "wax paper resist." You will need Glossy Card stock, wax paper, and an iron to do this technique. Crumple up a piece of wax paper (cut slightly larger than the Glossy Card Stock), and then gently flatten back out. "Sandwich" the wrinkled wax paper between two layers of Glossy Card Stock - glossy sides touching the wax paper. Quickly "iron" on one of the plain/ back sides of the card stock. The heat from the iron will "melt" some of the wax onto the glossy surfaces. Now you are ready to create!
I sponged Pool Party ink onto the Glossy Card Stock - use the back of the sponge section to rub any excess ink from the waxy spots. To create the look of seaweed, I stamped an image from Pocket Silhouettes using Lucky Limeade ink. A sentiment from Pocket Silhouettes is stamped in Lucky Limeade ink onto Lucky Limeade card stock, and punched out with the Curly Label Punch. The Glossy Card Stock is adhered to a piece of Island Indigo card stock, which I hand cut a wavy edge around.
The octopus image from the Summer Splash stamp set is stamped in Island Indigo ink onto Whisper White card stock, snipped out, and attached with Dimensionals. The Lucky Limeade striped DSP is from the 2011-2013 Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack. Some paper piercing into the Sahara Sand card stock adds a nice little detail, and the shells (colored with Sahara Sand, More Mustard, and Calypso Coral Markers) are the perfect finishing touch.
I have had a ton of fun using the Summer Splash stamp set from the Summer Mini. This set is only available through the end of August, so if you don't have it already, stop by my Online store and pick yours up today!
Happy stamping :)
