Just relax!

It doesn't get any better then a penguin in a donut floatie, wearing a polka dot bikini, sipping a cool drink!
 This fun interactive action wobble card was created with supplies from Tupelo Designs LLC where U.S. shipping is always free with no minimum purchase and international shipping is discounted.
 I started by stamping the Whimsy Stamps "lazy days of summer" penguin stamp on Neenah cardstock with memento tuxedo black ink. I used my new Tonic Studios/Tim Holtz stamping platform to get a nice crisp image.
 Spectrum noir alcohol markers were used to color this summery stamped image. I then cut out the colored image.
 To create the background I used one of my favorite techniques the "smooshing" technique with distress crayon salty ocean and distress oxide ink broken china and a bit of water.
 Whimsy stamps hand stitched rectangle die was used to cut out a panel from my smooshed background.
 To make my layering card front the background panel was glued onto a 3.75X5 inch blue panel which was then glued onto a standard A2 sized aqua blue card base.
 From my printer I printed the word "relax" from the same smooshed background. Cut that into a banner. with foam tape it was glued onto the card front.
 Application of the action wobbler onto the back of the penguin and card was super easy thanks to the peel and stick that is already on the action wobbler.
 My last finishing touch was 3 blue sequins.
 A great summery card was created!
 I have a detailed process video of this card on my YouTube channel just click HERE to watch the video.
