Have a sunny day with Summer Luka

Here is another card for this weekend.....

I drew inspiration from Paper Makeup Stamps again this week and used the sun from Jen's Sunshine.
The theme at Paper Makeup Stamps was "keep cool". I have had Summer Luka (La-La Land Crafts) for a little while now and wanted to use him, so after looking at the La-La Land Craft Blog, I saw a beautiful card by Debra James with an awesome background of beach huts, with Summer Luka and the sentiment "have a sunny day!" I tried to draw a beach hut, but then I remembered I had this palm tree stamp from Nitwit Collections (freebie with my Australian Simply Cards magazine).

Summer Luka is digitally stamped on to x-press it paper, as is the sun. The palm tree is stamped directly on to the card, which reminds me that I should adhere a piece of paper to the underside! I have also coloured the background with blues for the sky and yellows for the "sand".
The Copics pens I have used for Summer Luka are:

  • skin - E00, E11, E02
  • hair - YR20, E33, E35, E37
  • clothes - R35, R37, B02, B05
  • floaties - Y02, Y15, YG03, YG63
  • turtle - G02, G05, Y00, Y15
  • flippers - Y02, Y15
  • goggles/snorkel - BG000, BG10, BG15
For the sun, I used: Y11, Y15, Y17, R02 (cheeks), E02 (tongue).
For the palm tree, I used: E35 & E37 (trunk), E08 (coconuts), G02, G05 (leaves).
For the background sky, I used a combination of BG10, BG000 and B00. For the sand, I used Y02.

The sentiment is hand written in pitch black Spica pen.

This card will also be displayed in the La-La Land Crafts Customer Gallery and on the La-La Land Crafts Facebook page.

This card will be for sale on Etsy in my shop: JemLou Productions. The link to follow.
