The challenge at Rogue Redhead Designs this month is "Think Outside the ATC". Simon Says Stamp and Show an ATC. As you can see these two challenges work well together. I love to use texture when I create my art. Since I was using the new Beach Babes stamps from Rogue Redhead Designs to create a beach scene, what more appropriate to use than sand. It seems that at a stamp show some time back one vendor was selling Mudd Puddles, the sand that sticks. Of course, I had to have several jars of the product. Today it came in handy since the Malibu Beach jar was perfect for my atc. I don't know if the scan shows just how textured the sand is, but if not, picture the look and the feel of the beach. To make the sea and sky, I stamped the texture stamp from the set with Broken China distress stain and colored in the area of the sea. I cut out the little fellow and colored him with Copics and adhered him to the card. I cut out an image of the kite and attached a string to it and to the boy. The sentiment, also from that stamp set seemed appropriate to the kite flying scene.
