Beach Time!

 Happy Friday!
And Happy me!'s the beginning of another trip around the sun for me. I hope your week has gone well! Summer has arrived, school is out so let the vacations begin! I think it calls for a little beach time. Going to the beach would be a vacay for me now. Not so much when I was a kid. I grew up in a beach town & I could see the bay from my house. The actual Padre Island was only 20 minutes away. Beach time was all the time! So this is for the memories & all you landlubbers who didn't/don't have a beach nearby. 

I got my inspiration for this from a clock I saw & I thought I could create something similar. To make my beach clock, I die cut the circles & on the smaller one, stamped & colored the Adirondack Chair amp; Umbrella   The sandals, seagull & sailboat were drawn in w/ a multiliner pen & the bg was colored in. I inked the Woodgrain Bg w/ London fog & stamped off once before stamping across the scene, then I used a gray Copic to accentuate the board lines. The die cut numbers & clock hands were added on top. For the greeting, I stamped part of it & die cut the beach part. I had to die cut a few different words from the set then cut & paste them together.
 Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend & don't forget the sunscreen!

paper: Staples 110# white
ink:  Memento tuxedo black, London fog
accessories: Copic markers, white gel pen, ODBD numbers dies,  Lil' Inker stitched rectangles dies, Spellbinders A2 matting basics A & circles dies, Cheery Lynn clock dies, Sizzix Celebrations words dies, Copic multiliner pen

Oh...My...Stars!!! You have completely knocked this one out of the park!!! I've seen those adorable clocks too, but it never entered my mind to stamp one! Love the scene you created and the happy colors of the umbrella and the perfect wood grain!
