Samantha created an amazing beach scene with summertime fun! Take it away, Sam!
I can’t resist a good beach scene for the summer! And this time, the crab from Life is Good are up to some summer-y antics! I love how cute they are! All of the images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut out. I used images from Life is Good, On the Beach and Pool Party! I even added some details to the images with a white gel pen.
The background was created by die cutting out some sandy shores with the Stitched Hillside Borders. I used Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber to add color. Then splattered white acrylic ink, water and ink color on top to add the sandy texture.
I used some white cardstock, and the Stitched Ripple Backdrop for the ocean! I added color with Distress
Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Salvaged Patina, and surprisingly, I held myself back from any splattering! Ha! I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto some black licorice cardstock and cut it into a banner.
Thanks so much for this delightful inspiration, Samantha!
