After seeing a bunch of creations featuring flip flops from my Color Throwdown pals, I had to give my Papertrey Ink Flipping Out stamp set a try! I used it for this quick card for today's SCS clean and simple challenge.
The challenge was based on an inspiration piece featuring a black and white bathing suit with a ruffled top, worn by a woman standing on a beach with a beautiful blue sky. I pulled out the colors and the idea of layered ruffles from the photo for my card.
I made a simple beach backdrop using layered strips of torn kraft cardstock, inked along the rough edges with white pigment ink, and some torn and rolled ("ruffled") vellum strips for waves against a light blue background. I set the panel on a white card base, then used foam tape to attach a fun pair of blue dotted flip flops. A clear crystal adds a little sparkle to each shoe. The "I'd flip out without you" sentiment is stamped just beneath the panel in black ink to finish the simple, summery creation.
