Turtle Surfer Beach Card

Happy Hump Day Crafters,

Today I'm excited to be a guest designer for Sunny Day Crafting.

Their new challenge for the week is #43 B is for Beach. 

For this challenge I made a card using KaDoodle Bug Designs 

I needed to make this card quickly so I used the jpg and printed it out on my printer and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.   I needed more sand so I used the svg file sand, filled it with  color to match the color on the sand at the bottom of the turtles jpg.   It was too light for me and didn't have enough texture so I put Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink on it, sprayed it with water and used a paper towel to blend it and give it texture.   
I'm learning to use the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks so I'm trying to use them in my projects. 

Here's a picture of what it looked like after I added the ink and before I sprayed it with water.

Here's a picture of it when I sprinkled it with water and before I blended and dabbed with a paper towel.

I also used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide to create the background.  Used the Fossilized Amber, Fired Brick & Worn Lipstick.  Not the best background but I'm still learning.   For a quick card I think it turned out pretty nice.
