A Day at the Beach


Hi everyone.  Today's SCS CAS challenge (#282) is a day at the beach.  Wonderful way to spend a sunny, summery day! :)

I used a digital image from Sweet 'n Sassy, printing it onto watercolor paper and then simply used my water brush to pick up color directly from my ink pads and following along the lines of the image.  I added some Dazzling Details glitter glue along the horizon and along the wave lines of the ocean to give it some sparkle. Easy, and fun card to do that didn't take very long.







Stamps:  Ocean Paradise (Sweet 'n Sassy digital image); Beach Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  110 lb. white (Neenah); Watercolor paper (Tim Holtz)
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Soft Sky (SU!); Black (Memento)
Accessories & Tools:  Aqua Painter, Dazzling Diamonds (SU!)

SCS - CAS #282

How about that? I just posted a beachy card an hour ago and yours just popped into my blog roll! (I don't usually join the SCS challenges, but I should join this one!) Golly, Lolly, your scene is so real and inviting! That sediment is perfection!! I hope you are back to feeling 100% well! Hugs, Dolly

Your card is fabulous...a relaxing, peaceful beach scene! We're visiting my husband's family in Kelowna and I think a stroll to the nearby beach is on the agenda for later today! Your water-colouring: fabulous!
