This is for LSC121 to use a set that hasn't been used for a long time. The last time I uploaded anything from this set was Oct 2006. We are leaving early in the morning for our 15th annual week long reunion at Cape Hatteras, NC. I am excited to see all my sisters and BIL's again. We have lots of fun cooking, drinking coffee, talking, sitting on the beach and laughing until we almost dampen our panties. I thought using this set is very fitting for the challenge. My husband thinks I'm nuts as I still haven't packed yet. Clothes are in the washer, though.
I stamped the image and masked it to keep clean from the caribbean and caramel. I sponged on both the water and sand with a regular sponge. I hit the sand with IBB to add some texture and then painted in a few sprigs of sea oats. This is what the sand dunes look like along the coast of the Outer Banks. I sketched a sad little lighthouse back in the distance to add something else to the scene as it looked empty to me. I like the look. I sponged in banana along the dune edges and then sponged Bashful Blue and Caribbean with the cloud template to create the sky. I added more Banana to one corner to create a subtle sun. I painted the image with reinkers and a watercolor brush. I used Liquid Applique to create the sea foam and heated. I've had several people ask me how I get the fine look with the LA and not the dreaded blobs. I just apply small little amounts where ever I want the foam and then tap around it a little bit with my finger to spread it out some. I used a Stardust Gelly Roll glitter pen that my new friend, Kim gave me. I've never had one of those before. I outlined the main image and all of the sea oats and around the wave area. I doubt you can see it in the scan. I then sponged the versa pad directly over the water and sky area and embossed with iridescent ice ep to add sparkle and life to the scene. I drew a few too many gulls but I like them.
