Just Flyin' By To Say Hi!

As I mentioned before I have been binge watching YouTube card techniques.  I tried one of the fun techniques I watched with this card.  Actually it was done with watercolors, but I did it with ink pads & sponges.

Pick your stamp & sponge colors on the cardstock anticipating where the stamp will fall within the colors.  The stamp, Tropical Sunset (G1442), made it pretty easy.  I added more Sand (C413) & a Crane on a Pier (C3636).  The Sentiment 3 (UMS7020) stamped & added with pop dots.

Another flat card, well almost flat, but again I built a story with the stamps.  Simple, but fun.

Oregon Sand Dunes

We live near the Oregon Sand Dunes & they are beautiful.  This week's card is a homage to our dunes.

I sponged in the "sand dunes" & stamped sand over them. I added the beach fence & grass.  A beach is not a beach without a seagull swooping down.

Now this card is very different than any other card I  completed over the past year.  Can you all tell me what it is?  OK, I'll tell's fussy cut on this card.  Yep, all I did was sponge & stamp a beach scene & I love how it turned out!

Stamps used:
  • Sand                 C413
  • Beach fence      B3336
  • Seagrass sm.     A988
  • Seagull              B3695
  • Sentiments 3     UMS7020

Sand in Our Toes Sketch Challenge - August

I am so excited this month's challenge sketch & theme is "Sand in Our Toes" because I live on the Oregon Coast.  There is sand not only in our toes, but it tracks inside the house all the time.  I don't care...I love the wind, fog, & in the Summer cool weather.

Here is the first of my cards this month...

Beach Chair - A082
Excalibar Sandcastle Small - B3376
