Stampin' Up Sunny Splash Spiral Dye Hello Sunshine Card

Today's card features 2 fun stamp sets: Stampin' Up Sunny Splash and Stampin' Up Spiral Dye Stamp Set.  The colors are featured this week on The Paper Players Challenge: Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Basic White. 
I started with a panel of Shimmery White card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 6 1/4".  I placed the card stock on my Stamparatus.  I inked up Stampin' Up Spiral Dyes with Parakeet Party and spritz it with water prior to stamping it onto the card stock.  I let it dry and turned the paper 180 degrees.  I inked the stamp with Tahitian Tide and spritzed with water and stamped again.

I cut the stamped card stock down to 4" x 5 1/4".  I adhered it to a Tahitian Tide panel to create the card front.

I stamped the swimsuit image from Stampin' Up Sunny Splash Stamp Set using Tahitian Tide ink.  I fussy cut the image with my Paper Snips.  I stamped the sentiment with Parakeet Party ink on a piece of Basic White.  
I die cut the sentiment and a piece of Parakeet Party card stock with Stampin' Up Stylish Shapes Dies.  I adhered the circle to the card front with Stampin' Seal.  I adhered a little Seal to the circle and twisted a piece of Tahitian Tide/White twine from Stampin' Up 2022-24 In Color Bakers Twine in loops.  

I adhered the swimsuit and sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Faux Sea Glass.

I stamped the sentiment with Tahitian Tide ink on a panel of Shimmery White card stock.  I stamped a swim suit with Parakeet Party ink.
