Needed - Beach and Lottery Ticket

Any teachers out there that have recently returned to work?  I know you can totally relate to the card I am sharing today. 

I created the background using some new Oxide Distress Inks, lightly spritzed with water on a craft sheet.  The color was picked up with a piece of cardstock, drying in between layers.  This piece was trimmed and layered on green and blue.

The Hammock in Palms image was stamped in black on top of the background and colored with Tombow Markers.  The image was stamped a second time on white cardstock and the leaves were colored and fussy cut.  They were slightly curved and popped up over the first image.  This gave it some great dimension.

I used a fun sentiment, Needed Immediately..., stamping it in a “beachy” color and layering it on green.

Teachers, we probably will feel more like this later in the school year, but it is always a good time to be at the beach.
