Welcome to the Beach

Hello!  Today I have a card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I used an old Flourishes stamps from the Beach Life set that I stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and colored with Copics and sponged the embossed sky with Summer Sky ink. This is an older stamp set that I love to use in beach scenes. I adhered the image to Ivory CS and  a card base of Brown CS. Brads were attached for coconuts on the Palm Trees.
Other supplies: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Rectangle and Label dies from Spellbinders: Darice EF Clouds; Brads from stash.

CAS(E) this Sketch: #132 Shown on right.
Less Is More: Week 233 Theme is Life's a Beach
Retro Rubber: Challenge 19 - Inspire Me with Color....used blues, green, sand with splash of red from photo on left
AAA Cards: Game 44-Waterworld and Dies . Experiment with watery backgrounds or underwater life. Cool pool colors and splashes, and die cut accents. Used Label and Rectangle dies.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
