What a great trip Stacy is carrying us on this week. We are headed to The Smithsonian Institution. You'll find plenty of inspiration there. I found a lot of old 2- seater bicycles to inspire me. This is the Columbia Tandem Bicycle, 1896. https://ids.si.edu/ids/deliveryServi...442G&max_w=450
To create my card, I stamped the bicycle and colored, then masked it off and sponged on some sand. I made a few grains of sand darker with my dot stamp. Last, I punched out a cloud die and used for a template just sponging around the edges for my sky.
I hope you can see the sparkle in the water made with my Spectrum Noir glitter brush (Sparkle).
I put a frame around it and added a sentiment.

Oh, Brenda, I love how you were inspired by the old tandem bicycle! It actually looks like one that would fit Walt and me with the much higher seat in the back. Just love the beach scene you've created, and what a beautiful ocean and sky! It's so relaxing to bike on the beach. Looks like a fun afternoon with all the flowers and the darling hearts! Oh, and I do see the sparkle in the waves...so realistic! Hugs, sweet friend!
