Calgon Take me Away

Even though we've been having mild Winter, I surely wouldn't mind being zapped into this scene.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Design
I created Accordion Fold using two panels of 5.5" x 10-5/8" card stock.  I scored the panels using the Scor-Buddy, scoring at 2-1/8", 4-1/4" and 6-3/8".  The Scor-Buddy works wonderfully for creating these score marks, since these measurements are already marked on the board with the Dot, Asterisk and Dot.

Here's the two panels embellished with card stock and pattern paper from KaiserCraft.

Adhere the two center panels over each other as shown above, then stamp and embellish as desired.

The beautiful Palm Tree image is from Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Retirement set.  The image is stamped in Black Archival on a piece of KaiserCraft pattern paper, then colored with a combination of STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor and ErgoSoft Colored Pencils, blending the colors with Gamsol.  I added clouds to the background by sponging Blue Ink around a Scallop edge.  The sentiment is from The Sea Mini set from Our Daily Bread Designs.

To further embellish I added some Fish Netting and Shells created with STAEDTLER Fimo Clay and Push Moulds.

Here's the closed view of the front of  card

Here's a view from the back (note, I ran out of paper to finish the scene)

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - What are you Known For.  I'm a layer girl, and usually add 1/8" Black (or Chocolate) layers to my projects.  I also use a lot of pattern paper, and love to sponge the edges!
