Fun Adventure! With Penguin Palace Stamps

Today I have another colorful card to share with you using new stamps from the Penguin Palace Summer release. I used a very different color palette than I normally would thanks to a very unique pad of pattern papers from My Minds Eye called Wander, and the super adorable new stamp set called Fun Adventure, featuring a little traveling girl and her pup, ready to take on the world.

I chose my colors for the card by matching up my Copics to the stripes on the paper, and selected a rarely used sage green Distress Oxide for the background. I dabbed some ink from my Bundled Sage distress oxide pad onto some scrap acetate and using a spritz of water I went about making a splashed background on some Bristol smooth cardstock. Then I gently splattered a little metallic blush ink on top.

While those were drying I stamped and colored my images with Copic markers and used a white gel pen for highlights. I added a little Wink of Stella to the clouds & mountain tops, and used a gold gel pen for the buttons and brass corners of the suitcase. I then die cute the girl and sign from fun foam to mount my colored images and placed under an acrylic block to dry.

Once everything was dry I adhered my mountains, trees and clouds to the image panel. I stamped my Bon Voyage sentiment to the bottom using my stamp platform, then applied my fun foam images. I added the little airplane with dimensional glue dots so it would have a little oomph.

Finally, I die cut my card layers using stitched frame dies, and trimmed a piece of yellow cardstock to barely show under my striped layer. I tied a piece of coral and white bakers twine to the stack before using Scor Tape to attach my image layer. I once again used Scor Tape to attach my card front to my card base.
