On the Beach


Hello!  How about a day at the beach?  Let's head for the beach via this card that I created for Retro Rubber Challenge Life's a Beach and other challenges.  I began by creating the beach scene with some ocean waves and a blue sky using Distress Oxide Inks Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Stormy Sky, and Memento Summer Sky ink. I simply applied the inks in different ways and added some pencil coloring too until I achieved the look of sand and waves. I stamped Palm Trees with the Hammock using the Misti with Peeled Paint, Candied Apple, and Vintage Photo. Colored in with a water brush.  Added in some sea grass and the sentiment using Vintage Photo unk. All stamps used are from Flourishes set Beach Life from 2012.  Finished with a Kraft mat and Blue card base. 
This is a one of a kind card since I don't think I  would be able to reproduce the background.

The way you've built up the background is fabulous. I just want to lie in that hammock and listen to the sea! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge this week.
