By The Seashore- Thinking of You

Hi Again Stampers! 

I had a chance to complete one more card Saturday evening and decided to play along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA261 Sketch Challenge as well as the Splitcoaststampers’ Mix-Ability MIX120 “Just Beachy” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the F4A273 “Sand Between My Toes” Challenge (see details here and gallery here).

When I organized my stamping area (a while ago :-)), I found some previously pre-printed My Digital Studio (MDS) images that had already been colored and “fussy-cut” and decided to use for these images for the main design.   Of course, you could stamp the images if you do not have MDS...

Again, if you have not stopped by any of the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- fantastic inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the By The Seashore images (re-sizing all a bit) and print out using Black Printer Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.

The sand has alot of shimmer and sparkle that is difficult to see in the photo :-)
Color the images using Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Markers.
Fussy-cut each image and use an AquaPainter™ to apply retired Frost White Shimmer Paint to each image.

Tear a piece of scrap paper to create the edge for the shoreline, mask a portion of Whisper White cardstock and using Sponge Daubers apply Sahara Sand Classic Ink for the sand area.

Remove the mask and replace over the sand (extending a bit for the “foam”) and sponge Pool Party, Marina Mist and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink for the ocean.

Mask the water area again and spritz Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with rubbing alcohol) over the sand area, lift the mask and re-mask the sand area to spray Frost White Shimmer Paint over the ocean area.

Ink the Gorgeous Grunge large splatter stamp using Sahara Sand and stamp over the sand area.

Add a few white highlights over the water with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker as well as highlights on the shell images, etc.

Use a Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen S Marker to add the definition for the shore line.

Stamp the sentiment using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and trim the panel, mount onto Tip Top Taupe cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Mount the seashell images using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
