When I first seen what the challenge was for Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge, Summer Fun, I knew exactly which stamp set I wanted to use: Hers Art's Let's Chill. However, as I was hunting for that stamp set, I came across another of Hero Art's stamp sets called LOL, and instantly an amazing idea popped inside my head; I was going to create a scene that would show up as a tropical beach picture on a smartphone!
I stamped the little scene onto Canson XL watercolor paper using the tree and bird from the Let's Chill set, and colored it using my Zig markers. I then stamped the phone from the LOL set onto black cardstock using Versamark ink and embossed using Wow's Metalic Silver embossing powder. I then fussy cut the outside AND inside of the phone (which was actually REALLY simple), and glued it to the scene. I cut around the scene to make it a die cut piece.
To finish the card, I partially die cut a piece of green cardstock using my Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangles, and stamped tone on tone with the Stamp of Approval Lovely Lattice background stamp. I white embossed the Let's Chill sentiment on to black cardstock and adhered my pieces using un foam for dimension. I finished the little bird by adding a glare to his sunglasses as well as some shine with Glossy Accents.
