I'm here today with my first card as a Designated Designer for Drunken Stampers! Our theme is Place: A Beach [Use water, a beach, or the tropics as your theme.]
The challenge runs from August 10th -16th! Have a few drinks [alcohol or not] and make sure to link your entry at the Drunken Stampers Blog.
The stamp I used is a retired stamp [Summer by the Sea] from Stampin' Up. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Copic X-press paper two times and colored the images with Copic markers. The women's hair, shirt, and man's arm/leg were colored on the first one. The man pants and hair were colored on the second image. I stamped the man' s shirt again, on patterned paper. All of these images were fussy cut...the entire first image, the man, except his arm/leg on the second, lastly the shirt.
The background was watercolor paper which had been colored with Tim Holtz Distress Stains [Chipped Sapphire and Broken China] and then distressed around the edge with Broken China Distress Ink. Two pieces of 100 grit sandpaper [I think it really looks like sand] were torn and distressed...and the first piece was attached to the background. The complete image was added on the sandpaper and the second piece of sandpaper was placed over to cover part of the man's foot. The 2nd image...man's pants, shirt and hair were placed over the first. The last piece added was the shirt. [I didn't like that the shirt was higher than the man's hair so I stamped and colored another head and added on top of the other one.] The word Dream [from my stash] was distressed and stapled, using the Tiny Attacher, to the background. Next time, I'll hopefully remember to take photos of the steps when needed...it would have helped here.
I hope you enjoy all the Designated Designers' cards and have a Tropical Hooter on us!
Have a fantastic week,
Team Tropical Hooters
