I almost didn’t get around to doing this week’s ATS Challenge #24, because I couldn’t think of a shaped card I wanted to make. Last night I was stamping some images to send off for a new friend and one of the images was this Surfer Riley (ATS used to carry Riley stamps). And it came to me, I should make a surfboard shaped card. I penciled in the shape on a 3.5″x8.5″ card and then hand-cut it out. I wish I had some sand to glue to the bottom, but I don’t, so I tried to make it look like sand. Do you think I succeeded? I also added some sparkle to the water with my clear atYou Spica marker.
