Beach 'Brellas



A couple of weeks ago, one of my husband's nurses told me that I should rest whenever my husband rests...basically suggesting to take advantage of any rest I can get, whenever it be.  So, I've decided to heed that same advice for posting to this blog...post when I can.  And today just happens to be a two-post-kind-of-day!  Woot!

If you are looking for the Repeat Impressions "What If Wednesdays" sketch challenge, scroll down or click here.

I wanted to share a card I started last night and finished this morning.  I stamped the Hambo image of "Beach 'Brellas" (3408) with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored this awesome image with Copic markers and carefully cut with my Cutter-bee scissors.  I then drew a beach scene with Copic markers onto a rectangle panel of X-Press It cardstock.   The ocean white caps were drawn with a Uni-ball Signo white pen.  The birds were drawn with a Memento Tuxedo black marker.  Polar White Flower Soft was used to create the ocean's foam where it meets the sand. 

I then framed my ocean scene with a piece of white cardstock.  I placed it onto a piece of patterned paper from Bella Blvd, which was also framed with white cardstock.  I placed the umbrellas slightly below the scene using Pop-Dots.  Two pink flip-flop brads where used, along with Pink Sorbet Baker's Twine from The Twinery, for the finishing touches on this card.

I was inspired by Sketch Challenge #389 on Splitcoast. 

TAKE ME THERE!  I sure wish I could go to the beach! 


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!  I will continue to create and post when I can.

I thought you'd overlaid the umbrellas onto a photograph at first! What a terrific beach scene!
