Flip Flop ...

Made a postcard for the summer challenge at The Sailing Pineapple blog this week :

The background was made by coloring various colors of Paper Artsy chalk acrylics randomly. When it dried I covered the whole thing in paynes grey acrylic paint. I splashed water onto it, waited until the unwatered grey was dry and used a baby wipe to remove the watered parts. The water stops the paint from drying ... Thanks Andy Skinner for that technique :)

I printed the flip flops on my printer, colored them with inktense pencils, embossed them in clear powder and cut them out. Flowers and brads were added.

I used individual letter stamps to stamp the sentiment, cut it out and doodled around them words to match the doodled edge of the flip flops.

This is another page in my optimist / positive affirmation book :) 

Thanks for visiting, please leave me a comment :)
