A Beach Destination with Caly

Hi Friends! It’s Caly with you today!  The Travel Destination/Favorite Place Challenge is going strong.  I bet there are lots of places people are wishing they were at or could be soon!  Today’s card is beach-themed.  ANY nice beach will do. I shared on my blog on Monday about how naïve I am to traveling – it intimidates me! My kids have been begging to go anywhere with a beach and I hope we can soon!

My beach scene today includes images from the Life is Good and On the Beach sets.  I stamped and colored them with Copic markers to bring them to life.

Copic markers:
Reds:  R32, R35, R39
Oranges:  YR61, YR65, YR68
Yellows:  Y00, Y11, Y15
Greens:  G21, YG06, YG09
Teals:  BG10, BG11, BG13
Blues:  B01, B02, B05
Purples:  V01, V04, B05
Pinks:  [RV00, RV52, RV55], [RV30, RV42]
Browns:  [E50, E53], [E30, E31, E34, E35]
Grays:  C1, C3, C5

For my background, I ink-blended the sky with Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks.  I splattered it with some water droplets to give it some texture – but I love the soft glow it gives. 

On another panel, I ink-blended with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. After die-cutting it with a Simple Stitched Hillside Borders die, I added some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink to give it shading at the top. I used the largest Outside In Stitched Rectangles die to add a decorative stitch around both ink-blended panels to give them more interest.

Last but not least, I added my images to the card to fill my sandy beach scene. I finished by attaching my sentiment, which is comprised of die-cut letters from the Cole’s ABCs set and an embossed sentiment from the Life is Good set. 

I hope you enjoyed this beach scene!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
