TLC386 ~ Let's Make a Beach~ (7/16/12)
Hello everyone....are you ready to get inky or should I say wet!!! Since it's summer and I'm sure all of you have been or want to go to the beach...let's do a little stay-cation and make our own beach!!!

There are lots of techniques to make water and sand:

1. Tear the paper for the water, curl or rough the edges, and sponge on ink that is a shade darker. You can do the same thing for the sand.
2. Use a wave die
3. Use sand paper for the sand
4. Sponge on the water and sand by masking the layers for a wave effect.
5. Use kraft paper for the sand and actually glue sand to the paper.
6. If all else fails, use stamps....LOL!!!

My sample:

Life is a Sea of Wonderful Treasures

Happy Stamping!!!

thanks Joan... I went with the "wave die" option... not quite as 'senic' as the others

TLC386 Sweet Day on the Beach
What a super challenge! I ripped some paper, and a blue napkin- and used some canvas fabric and a DC scallop for my clouds. I reused the canvas- paired with a 2 layered flower- here's Sweet Day on the Beach

Here's my card for the Let's Make a Beach challenge-

Kids on the Beach - thank you by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I didn't do anything fancy to make the beach, just a bit of sponging in sand color - I let the stamp carry the day.

Fun challenge, thanks for the beach theme. I live in the desert part of Oregon, so any chance I have to imagine myself on the beach is a vacation from reality!

angelsparkly 07-17-2012 08:30 AM

Ok I may have cheated just a little with this beach. ;) since its a real beach in a photo:

This Let's Make a Beach theme is addictive! Made another card using the scraps on my table and a tool that lingered unused in my drawer for 3 years - the We R memory keepers Sew Easy piercing wheel.

Gee, I hope there isn't a limit as to how many cards we can make for this challenge. I had some bits and pieces leftover on my stamp table and they demanded to be used!
