For the sunset, I didn’t want to have a harsh line between the sun reflection and the ocean so I covered the top ocean wave of the Beach Border with Trees and Chair stamp with tape. After I inked the stamp, I removed the tape and stamped the image onto White Cardstock 4.25” x 5.5.” I then die cut the coordinating die from Ocean View Dies with masking paper. For the sun, I die cut the third smallest circle from Stitched Circle Small Dies with masking paper. I covered the stamped image with the masking paper and then laid the sun on top slightly overlapping the stamped image.
Starting from the top edge of the masking paper, I ink blended the sky with Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide around the circle working my way upwards to the top edge of the cardstock. I then added Milled Lavender and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide. I gently removed the masks and inked the sun with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide letting the brush touch the water part of the image. I added Squeeze Lemonade Distress Oxide around the sun.
For the ocean and sand, I used the Copic Markers listed below. For the ocean foam, I drew small squiggly circles at the edges of the waves with a white gelly roll pen. I also added white specks on the sand with the white gelly roll pen.
To finish off the card, I used a die cut banner from Stitched Rectangle Dies to add a white frame around the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
