Surf's Up - Let's Play

I saw the AEIHeartUChallenge #25 - Rainbow and I wanted to join in. I have missed so many rainbow challenges with being away, working or just too late. Got home and saw this challenge was on and due in three hours. Could I do it?? Well I sure spent a bit of time trying to work out what to dots I only have two stamp sets, lots of dies. Tried a few things, nearly gave up then thought ok one more go.

Here it is

Well its certainly not CAS and I don't think it needs to be for this challenge. Love, love this stamp. Decided to make its group of friends off to surf, and of course they all have rainbow coloured combies. No room for surf boards after all that so pretend they are in the back. 'Surf's Up' comes with the stamps. Not sure where 'let's play' is from but it went with it perfectly I thought.

Used Miss Misti to stamp the vans, using masking. Then I used the negative and tyres and trim and windows to do lots of fiddly masking but was so pleased with thinned result. Felt they needed a bit of grounding so used copics to dot in sand near the tyres and coloured the windows with pale grey pencil. Trim on the vans and hubcaps all done with silver Wink of Stella. 
Used Distress ink for the blend colours and Hero Art Ink Charcoal for the stamped sentiment.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

I know you have seen this post but I felt there was something missing added some twine at the top which is a mix of blues and greens.

Then of course will also add to The Daily Marker - 30 Day Colouring Challenge - Day 25
