Bikini Note Card

Here is another Summer Hello Card using the SSS July Card Kit.

I just love the bikini’s design. I made this card for The Paper Players challenge #353 – Summer Fun in the Water and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday – Use Plaid Challenge.
I am having a blast with this kit and hope you enjoy the cards I have created along the way. I will be sad to see this season end. On with this card design and ingredients.

This really is a simple card.

It is just a layer of plaid paper from the kit on a card base. The sentiment is stamped with Onyx Black on white card stock. This panel has a teal and black card stock border.

I did stamp 3 bikinis but decided on this layout so only two were painted with a yellow Zig Brush maker and water brush. When dried I added a few white dots to the suits with a gel pen.

The blue background is a combination color of Cobalt blue and Persian blue that was colored onto a clear block with a few drops of water to get the color I wanted. This panel has a black card stock border.

I did add a few Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew to the blue background. I also colored the word summer with Clear Wink of Stella then went over it with Silver Wink of Stella for more shine. Added a few of the flat sequins from the kit and that was it. I hope you like it.

Ingredients:
Paper: Plaid paper from SSS July Card Kit, SSS teal card stock, black card stock and Neenah 110# white card stock.
Ink: Versafine black onyx. White gel pen.
Stamps: Bikini and Sentiment from the SSS card kit.
Other: Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew, Silver and Clear Wink of Stella and Flat sequins from the SSS July card kit

  1. Nothing says summer quite like the yellow polka-dot bikini! It looks great against your mixed blue background. The plaid is a nice contrast. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.
