When it's Hot!

I love doing beach scenes so it wasn't a big surprise for me when I decided to do a beach scene for this week's challenge I do with a group of friends on SCS. This week's challenge was to make a *Hot* card ...... how we interpreted this was up to us ...... it could be hot like a sunny summer day, hot like red hot chillie pepper, hot like on fire etc .... I think you get the idea. Of course I decided to go with the hot like a sunny summer day. As it is winter here summer seems such a nice thought ..... I am sure once summer is here I will be wanting cooler weather .... you know how we can be at times ;)

Most of the stamps used in this scene are from High Hopes stamps .... they have some fun stamps. For this scene I started by stamping the little boy first and masking him and then I stamped the beach scene. I then stamped the girl, the little boy and the crab onto a scrap of white card. I cut the girl out and removed her legs (ouch!) and cut the boy out except for his spade. After coloring everything I placed the girl in the water and attach the boy image over the original one using foam tape. The crab I attached to the lower right side of the card and the sun was stamped onto the top right hand corner.

For the verse I used I stamped it onto so saffron card and used my word window punch to punch out just the last two words and attached it to the card just under the boy. I also used my photo corner punch to create a photo corner for the left side of the card.
