Needed a summer-like project!

I don't know about you, but I am not a fan if winter.  I don't know why I still live in Montreal in the winter months.  It hasn't been too cold or successive snow storms but we have had a mixed bag of precipitation which is frustrating.  So, I needed to be on a beach! What better than a fun beach scene featuring Lawn Fawn!


I used Octopi my Heart, Mermaid for You (rock and sentiment) stamp sets and the tree is from Critters from the Past.  I Copic coloured the images then used the coordinating dies.  For my background I die cut a Neena Solar White panel with the largest of the smaller Dotted Squares. I then used the Stitched Hillside Borders and the Spring Showers cloud dies to cut masks.  I used a mix of Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks for the water and only Tumbled Glass for the sky/clouds. I then die cut another square and used one of the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders for my "beach" then used a mix of Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Inks. I added some dot detail with the Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Markers along with my White Gellyroller. 

I stamped my sentiment with mix of Lawn Fawn Pink Flamingo Ink and Versafine Onyx Black. I then put the card together and added some sequins.

Thanks for taking the time!
