This cutie called "Surfing Gabriel" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, fits the June theme of Summer perfectly! He's catching waves and hanging ten LOL! The sentiment "No Waves" goes perfectly with this image! I tried surfing when we visited Hawaii and let me tell you it's no easy feat. I never did catch a wave or even get standing on the board. I just wasn't coordinated enough lol! Made for a good "blooper" real! Hubby on the other hand did just fine!(argggg lol).
I started my card by stamping Gabriel onto some Copic friendly paper and coloured him in using my Copic Sketch markers. Next using a MFT Stitched Tag die, I cut out the image. I chose papers from the Echo Park "I Love Summer" 6x6 collection. Using a wave die I cut out some waves and added then in layers with foam tape. I took some white craft paint and painted the tips to give it a white cap look. A few enamel dots finish off my card.
