Summer is not over yet. After having an unseasonably cool week here in Ohio last week, the heat was back over the weekend. Bad thing is our pool water is freezing cold and will need to warm back up. So yesterday was one I spent on the deck lounging, after washing the car, cleaning the house, washing two giant dogs. Hmmmm, I guess I didn’t do that much lounging. . . . .
Here is a beach scene to warm you up.
This cute little baby stamp is from http://www.mypapermoon.com Isn’t she just adorable.
Ready, let’s go to the beach.
|Stamps: mypapermoon.com “baby” & Inque Boutique “A word or Two”|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Baja Breeze & Pacific Point|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up Creamy Caramel, Baja Breeze & Pacific Point, Palette Noir Black|
|Accessories: Real Red & Creamy Caramel markers, Silver Brads, White Gel Pen, Brayer, Fine Detail Clear embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Versamark marker, Stamp-a-ma-jig|
Stamped Sentiment with Creamy Caramel ink on Whisper White card stock.
Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement, stamped the baby with Palette Noir Black ink.
Colored the baby, baby’s shadow and paintbrush point with a Creamy Caramel marker.
Colored the bow in her hair and the paint brush handle with a real red marker.
Missed taking a photo, oops! Cropped the sides of my card stock. It now measures 4″ x 4″. Colored over the baby and the paint brush with a Versamark marker and heat embossed the image using fine detail clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Brayered Baja Breeze ink on the top of the card stock.
Note: I do have a new brayer. It is a Speedball brayer just like my old one, but the handle looks different. The roller is the same as my old one. It says “Soft Rubber” on the package. I can’t believe four of you readers commented on my last post about the new brayer, very observant!
Brayered Creamy Caramel ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Masked the top 1/4th of the card stock with a post it note.
Sponged Pacific Point ink at the post it note edge. Being darkest with the ink at the post it note edge and getting lighter toward the creamy caramel ink.
Removed the Post it note mask.
Made a whole lot of little dots with a white gel pen right were the blue ink meets the Creamy Carmel ink to create a look of foam at the waters edge.
Used the direct to paper technique by smearing Creamy Caramel and Pacific Point ink pads directly on a panel of Baja Breeze.
Assembled the card front and here it is measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
Hope your day is one of playing in the sand at the beach.
Until my next post. . . . . . . . . .
