Sitting on the Beach

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! If there's a decent breeze, I'd like to be right there in that chair. We are having the worst heat wave here! And my hubby has been on crutches for a week..we had the back re-sodded, the sprinkler system wasn't working right..Aye yi yi!! Between watering & waiting on him, I've been hopping around like a one legged flamenco dancer! I told hubs I could just amputate the foot & get him a peg cause we already have the parrot, lol. So far he's not going for it.

This card is all on one layer..I say one layer because there is only one. I never count the card itself. To me that's a no layer. I started by stamping the chair, masking, then the umbrella, fence & palm tree. With the masks for all of these still in place, I sponged on the sand, sea & used a scallop edge mask to sponge the sky w/ clouds. 

I added the greeting and colored in the images & used a white gel pen to add the little waves. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 & these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have great weekend & try to stay cool! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week it's a color challenge.

A beach masterpiece! Using the umbrella for the beach is a stroke of genius...Looks just like a photo I have from a past vacation on Myrtle Beach!
