Hip to Be Square

This week's Art Impression's challenge is "hip to be square". Which means the card base needed to be square. I used. 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 patterned cardstock from the Simon Says May card kit as my card base in red and beige wavy stripes. For the main event I used water color paper and used distress inks in antique linen, salty ocean, broken china and a wee bit of stormy sky to create the allusion of a seashore. Then I stamped the Art Impression fence post stamp using hero arts black ink.

We love our beach!

I colored the pail and fence with Royal water color pencils and used my water pen to blend. I wrote the sentiment with silver gel pen on my cameo and cut them out, outlined with black and blue markers and adhered them with craft tape.

I mounted the painting onto the cardstock with foam strips. I found a boogie board in my stash and attached a cute sign. "grandma, grampa and me" and adhered it to the bottom of my card.



  1. How creative! I love what you have done with the fence post and a beach scene! Fun boogie board embellishment too!

  2. This is really beautiful!! Gorgeous work!! Thanks so much for joining our "hip to be square" challenge at Art Impressions!
