Just Beachy!!

When Michelle (Stamper's Dream owner) got these new Impression Obsession Images...Oh, my...I fell in love!! They're whimsical (not usually my style), but oh so fun and cheery and....round!! I loved their shape. So of course I just had to have them. This is my first card with one of the images that I now have. It's called Beach Day. I'll have a few more to show you in the near future.

In the photo, it looks like the bg is blue, but it's actually an eggplant color. I so need to get a photography tent....soon, very soon!

The image is colored with copics and the sun, umbrellas and sandpail are lifted with Scotch Mounting Tape. Here's a close up so you can see the dimension and the touch of sparkle

that I added with my Quickie Glue Pen
and Crystal Snow (Stampendous). I love the depth and hint of sparkle that Paper Tole and glitter can give to a project!!

Supplies: Stamps - Beach Day (Impression Obsession) Paper - Bazzill, White (Papertrey) Ink - Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger) Accessories - Copics, Quickie Glue Pen, Crystal Snow, Nestabilities, Scotch Mounting Tape, Sparkle Brads (Making Memories)
