Copics with Balsa Wood


Hello everyone!! I have a CCEE Stampers card to share with you today. Frances has challenged us to make a card with a sports theme since baseball was invented on June 12, 1839. The card can represent any sport, so I chose surfing.

First off, I was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #194. I stamped the surf board images, from the Verve set Relax, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Balsa Wood and colored them with my Copics. I found they actually blended pretty well too.

The palm trees were also colored with Copics and cut out, and the sun sentiment medallion was sponged with Wild Honey. The dp is Sunshine Broadcast by Sassafras.

That's it from me today. Now be sure to check out what sports the other gals are representing over at the CCEE Stampers Blog.

Happy Stamping!!
Tosh

Great use of the mojo sketch! Love the scene you have created. Hope it is a hand delivery because balsa wood and mail don't go well together LOL!
