Friends of Speedy TV Challenge

This week at Friends of Speedy TV, the challenge is Paper Piercing.  I made this card using the newly released "Flamingos on Vacation", a fun and humorous stamp set.  I created the clouds for the background mat using a newly acquired cloud stencil and sponging with blue ink for the sky and sand for the beach. For my palm tree, I double stamped the fronds, cut one out and added with pop ups to give a 3D look. Can you see my coconuts--the brown brads peeking between the layered fronds? Piercing is all around the scallop layer and the square card base. This will make a good send off card for friends headed off to vacation. Bon voyage!

Supplies:
Stamps: "Flamingos on Vacation"  Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Summer Sky, Desert Sand, Bamboo Leaves
Copics: E31,33, R81, Y13
Yellow Glaze Pen
Papers: White CS, Textured Blue CS all from Stash

Paper Piercing Tool from Making Memory
Cloud Stencil from Inky Antics
