It's all about summer over at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge :) This card is so representative of summer for me. Vacation during the regular year is near impossible so I am lucky to have a month over the summer. We love to go to the beach with friends of ours and this year is no exception!
Ironically, I used the Warm Christmas Wishes stamps and dies by Simon Says Stamp minus the Santa in shorts! I Copic coloured all of my images. For the background, sky, water and sand I used Distress Inks. For the sky Tumbled Glass and a Touch or Mermaid Lagoon, for the water Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers and the sand is a mix of Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso and some Distress Markers for the accents on the sand and the shadows. The seagulls are from a Lawn Fawn set and the sequins are Pretty Pink Posh!
Thanks for taking the time!
