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.

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!
Thank you, Caly for sharing with us today!
