Down by the Seaside

I always enjoy time at the beach ...the sound of the waves, the warmth of the sand, and the cool of the breeze. I have tried to capture the feel of the beach in my card.  I used Flourishes "Beach Life" stamp set. I stamped the sky and water with Memento Tuxedo Black and the sand and sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics B0000,B000, B01, E000,E00. Stamped birds with GKD "Gifts from the Sea". Sponged Memento Summer Sky on the sky. Added some white highlights using Distress Marker Picket Fence. Boat colored with red Glaze Pen.

Challenges to enter:
Craft a Scene:  Beach Scene-a bit of sand and water

Other supplies used:
Nesties Square die

Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches
Papers: All from Stash-Tan, White, Blue
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
