Beach Diva Card

Hi folks! I made this card using the Beach Diva stamp set from Joanna Sheen. I wanted the card give the illusion of looking through binoculars. So I made the extra fold, used my Nestabilities to cut the circles and a black Copic Marker to colour the panel.
I used DCWV patterned papers to over the card, ripped the 'sand' paper and inked it before adhering. I tied a large ribbon bow to the bottom panel. I then stamped the sentiment (from the set) on a piece of scrap card which I tore, inked and tucked behind the bow.I stamped the Diva out and coloured her with Copic Markers. I went over her sunglasses with a black Sakura Gelly Roll pen and added Sepia glossy accents on the book cover and glass.
This angle shows a glimpse of the acetate that I adhered behind the black panel.
Ciao for now!
