Hawaiian Beach Scene Card – Penguin Palace Challenge 1

Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing the second card I made for the first ever Penguin Palace Challenge over at the Penguin Palace Challenge Blog!

I started by cutting a rectangle using one of the dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die, and ink blendeding a background using distress oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender). I ink blended the “sand” using Antique Linen, Tea Dye, and Brushed Corduroy (just at the very edge), and cut it into a hill using a die from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder – Dies & Stencil Set.

Next, I stamped and Copic colored some of the adorable images from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used the following Copic colors for each of the images:

  • Tiki torch–E23, E21 (pole & center) | E27, E25 | YR09, YR04 (inner flame) | YR04, Y18, Y06 (outer flame)
  • Cat–YR31, Y21 (fur) | N6, N4 (glasses) | E39, E37, B00, B000 (coconut) | E31, Y26 (hat)
  • Girls–E11, E51, E50 (skin) | E29, E27, E25, E23 (hair) | R24 (mouths) | Y28, E31 (skirts)
  • Clothes, flowers, surfboard–BV01, BV31 | RV13, RV23 | R83, R81 | R35, R43 | Y08, Y06, Y04

Next, I adhered the images to the front panel and mounted it onto a 6 3/8″ x 4″ card base. Lastly, I paired up the “Aloha” and “Oahu Doin?” sentiments and stamped them onto a banner I created using the Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Banners. I added a few jewels, and tada, the card is complete!
