Surf Birthday

What fun I had creating this card :-) I found a new to me challenge blog- The Paper Players and I had fun with their sketch this week.

I created the surf background using Alcohol and a re-inker on glossy card- just like another of my cards last week. I love getting a bit inky. There's also a lot of wet embossing on the card to stand up to the intense colour of the Taken With Teal.

Colour Combo: Pacific Point, Basic Black, Taken With Teal (Retired).
Stamp Sets: Seaworthy, Extreme Elements, Grunge Rock, French Foliage, Afterthoughts. (all SU)
