Summer Fun

Hello!  There are several card challenges for summer-beach-sun fun.  I used an older stamp from Just For Fun in my collection to create this card. It is called Sunset with Palms.  I stamped it on white CS with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and colored with Copics and Distress Oxide inks using the photo below that I found online.   I covered the image with a smokey photo overlay transparency that  darkened the colors a bit. (See photo below.)  I cut a mat of white CS and placed that over the image and overlay and attached that to Coral card base.  The sentiment from GKD was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink directly on the mat.  Other supplies used: Versamark ink, White and Clear EP.  Dimensions of the finished card are 6.5" x5.25".  The transparent overlay gives a nice shine to the card in real life.
