Hi everyone! The end of July has seen the New Release stamps at Inspired by Stamping. The new sets are just amazing and I had a lot of fun playing with one in particular - Summer Fun
Here is my DT card -
My background was fun to do – I combined three sentiments and the little heart from the set and arranged them all onto an acrylic block. I was then able to stamp them as a 'block' of stamps instead of individual ones. This is a great technique for covering a large area.
If you look closely, you will see that my sand really does look like sand! Can you guess what I have used? I have a collection of paint swatches in my drawer that I picked up from the local hardware store. This one has this beautiful texture and is the perfect colour for sand. All I did was cut the edge with a circle die and draw a wavy line on the back with a pencil and cut along that line. I used double sided tape to adhere it to my cardstock circle.
Then I went to town sponging the sea and the sunset. Once finished, I stamped the palm tree in black to create a wonderful silhouette look. I have popped up my finished beach scene with foam tape for dimension.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Rubys Rainbow - On the Beach
