Stroll Upon the Beach
To create my card I first stamped the background with the Beach Babes background stamp. I used Pan Pastels to add the beach colors. I stamped the two children over the background to maintain the fine details and then again on white cardstock. Distress markers were used to color the children. I fussy cut them out and layered over the stamped image on the background. I took a layering panel and dry embossed it. The sentiment was then stamped on a scrap from that panel. I thought that the kraft base card went well with the sandy beach image. It really was a simple card to make. The background looks complicated, but it is a single stamp with three swipes of a sponge for color.
This card will be entered into these challenges: City Crafter -- cooling down; Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations -- By the Beach; and Addicted to CAS -- water.
