Accessories: Die-namics Dies - Catch a wave border die, Clouds trio, Fresh Cut Grass, Airbrush and Air Compressor, Fine sand, Dimensional Magic

Cut Kraft cardstock 255mm x 150mm
Score at 30mm, 60mm, 105mm and 150mm. 
Make the fold at 30mm a hill, the 60mm a valley, the 105mm a hill and the 105mm a valley, attach to a C6 sized card.
Cut the Blue diagonally striped paper from the Candy Shoppe Collection pack and cut 145mm x 100mm, attach to the back panel of Kraft cardstock.
Taking the white spotted blue paper, cut 4 wave strips, turn the paper over and cut 3 striped waves.
Using double sided tape attach to the ‘hills’ and back as pictured, 1 on the hill, 2 on the 2nd and 4 on the back panel.
Take the green striped paper from the Metropolitan Collection pack, cut 1 strip of grass, attach to the front of the card.
Apply a line of dimensional magic along the bottom of the grass strip, sprinkle over some fine sand, allow to dry.
While the sand is drying, it is time to get colouring!!
Stamp all the images onto Xpress it blending cardstock using the Memento ink.  When stamping the sign post, you will need to mask off the ‘zoo’ in the centre while inking, I found it easiest to use a cut up  post it note.
When all the images are coloured, trim them, stamp the sentiment in the centre of the sign using Onyx black ink.
Cut some clouds from White cardstock, airbrush a little BG10 around the edges, attach the clouds with foam tape.
Lastly add your beautifully coloured images
