Toucan on a Surf Board

Note, I didn't say 'surfing toucan' ...he's just perched on the surf board!

I started out with a Concord and 9th toucan stamp (I broke the diet, soz), and to get a 'vintage' look I stamped him in brown on kraft card with lots of distess ink daubing. 

I used an SVG cutting file from Lettering Delights - it had the surf board and the palm tree set in a little scene. So I stripped it down, enlarged it, cropped it and cut out what was left on my Silhouette machine.  I decorated the surf board with stamps from the toucan set. 

I created a background using inks and stencilled some clouds - which was a waste of time because since I vintaged it up and put the die cuts on top, you can't see them! 

Finally, I created and cut the 'aloha' on the Silhouette and added some shimmer pen. 

I'd like to enter:
