To make this card, I stamped the Adirondack chairs and the umbrella from the Taylored Expressions stamp set "A Day in Paradise" onto X-Press It cardstock. For the umbrella, I did some paper piecing. The rest of the scene was colored with Copic markers. I sponged some SeaShells Conch Shell dye ink for the sun, and used a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to draw the birds.
The sentiment, also from Taylored Expressions, was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Beige.
I framed the scene with kraft, and then placed onto a card panel made with patterned paper from Colorbok.
Inspired by today's WT482, "Let the Sun Shine".
Thanks so much for looking!

Oh my - I wish I were there! I grew up by the sea, and still miss it. And that sea, at least, looks a bit more like an Irish one, though we rarely need sun parasols here. Thanks for playing along and letting the sun shine :D.
