Handmade card - Wishing you Peace and Tranquility ( LCC DT Inspiration).

Hello guys
I have a wonderful news to share with you all today. I have started my term as a DT member of Lets Craft and Create challenge Blog from July onward and today is my first blog post for them. I have an inspiratin card to share with you all today and the this month's challenge is Just Beachy or Red, white and Blue.  So here is my card for this month's challenge. I would encourage you all to join in this month's challenge which you can enter by clicking this Link

Now onto my card, it is a very simple card and took me 20 mins to complete it. to begin I took a white textured cardstock and did some ink blending with just 2 distress inks - Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. I splattered some water and lifted some color off. I heat set this and then I did the waves using Modelling paste and Papericious Frosting Powder. I heat set everything and then stamped my sentiment using Archival Ink Black. the slippers are fussy cut from Red cardstock and it was fun to sketch and cut something out. I used my white gel pen to do the straps. I matter this panel with a Kraft cardstock and then mounted it on a standard A2 size white cardbase. Finished my card with some sequins from Mudra stamps.
I hope you like this quick and easy card....super fun and easy to make.
