Paradise {Scrapy Land #43}

Can you believe it's June 1st!?!  This year is flying by.  Since it's also the first Wednesday of the month, that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme for the first challenge is always Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

The following dies were used for today's card:

Die-Versions: Jumping Dolphins
Spellbinders: Opulent Ovals
Sue Wilson Designs: Noble dies-Double Pierced Rectangles, Set B

Today's project started out by using Copic markers to transform the Make It Crafty's Beach Digi Stamp into a sunset scene instead of a beach scene.

Once this was completed, I die cut the Opulent Ovals die from white cardstock and heat embossed the outer piece with Dark Night embossing powder.   Then I inserted the oval back into the frame.

The Jumping Dolphins die cut was also colored with Copics and a touch of glitter (Starfire) was added to the island trees and the stamen on the hibiscus.  I pop dotted this over the island scene and then added my die cut sea birds.

To finish it off, I die cut the yellow mat and the card base with two of the Sue Wilson die frames.

 I sure wish I was visiting this paradise about now.  How about you?

Be sure to visit the Scrapy Land Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team has created.  I know you won't be disappointed.  You'll have until June 12th to upload your project.  The winner, chosen by the Design Team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.

Oh, I've just fallen in love with those stitched dies, Anne, and they really work beautifully to mat and showcase this image. The inlaid die framing the tropical island is magnificent, as are the dolphins and the hibiscus. What a great combo of die cuts!
