Just Surfing

I needed a birthday card for my grandson this week. He definitely prefers "boy cards"!
I thought about the many sports he enjoys and wanted something different this time. I had seen Michelle Zindorf's beautiful brayered cards and thought about trying one of her tutorials. Here's what I came up with!
I added the surf board from the Just Surfing stamp set. I embossed it by first inking my stamp with VersaMark, then going into the color before stamping on the paper. Then I applied the clear embossing powder.

The inside of the card has waves and the greeting from the Just Surfing set. I used some Champane Mist ink on my Aqua Painter when I filled in the color for the waves. It is so pretty and glistens just like the sun is shining on the water!
I really hope he'll like his card.

Stamps: Just Surfing, Bare Tree (unknown)
Paper: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Glossy card stock
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Accessories: Brayer, white gel pen, Champagne Mist shimmer ink
