Summer Fun

You are my sunshine - card using Gina K stampsI used You Are My Sunshine by Gina K for this card. The limited supplies challenge at SCS was to make a summer theme card so this fit the bill.

Here is a picture of the Natural Sand Texture by Liquitex that I used for the sand.

I used water colors for the ocean, starting with a light blue.

Next I added some more color, using a green/blue and purple/blue.

Then I filled in the beach area by painting on the Natural Sand Texture. I used my brush to give it "drifts."

After it was dry, I went over it with water colors. I also clear embossed the ocean to make it shining.

Colored and clear embossed my image.

After I placed the umbrella, I went back and added some shadowing using water colors.

Have a great weekend.

Now I see why they made a glass stamp bigger than the chair and umbrella. Very cool. Love the sand effect and shadows you created.
