Beach Day!

Hello friends! I have been thinking about a way to incorporate the mice in a swimming scene. I had played around with a number of different things and nothing was working out. As I was putting away my Peek A Boo Pop Up Die, I got to messing around with it and thought about using it for a beach scene. It worked! I just love when that happens.

I used the Stitched Wave Border for the top on the front part of my Peek A Boo Pop Up. I used the Ocean Wave Stencils with Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio. I used the Hillside Stencils for the sand on the beach using Distress Oxide in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.

For the background, I wanted a sun. The moon nighttime sky stencil was too large, so I made my own stencil from a circle cut from a scrap piece of cardstock. The sun was inked in Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade. I used the Cloudy Stencil with Tumbled Glass for the clouds.

For the different elements of the scene, I kind of went crazy shopping my stash. I used; On The Beach, Pool Party, Life Is Good, Dandy Day, Crazy Antics, You Autumn Know, Bubbles Of Joy, Fintastic Friends, Simply Celebrate Spring, and Wavy Sayings.

Once I knew where I wanted to put my little mice in the water, I used the Ocean Wave Accents to cut openings to slide them into and then I used Stickles to highlight the waves.

This little card just makes me giggle. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!
