This was for today's sketch challenge at Splitcoast. Most of the stamps used in this card is from Seaside by Crafty Secrets. The sand in layered 2 times and stippled with creamy brown. Ocean was heavily sponge with Aquatic Splash, Sea Breeze andOcean Depth. Sky also was sponge first with Aqua all over except for the sun which I masked. Second layer of the sky was sponge with Cyan and used scallops to mask the clouds. Last layer of the sky was done using Peacock. Sun was sponged with Summer Sun. Added little birds and larger birds. Added the lighthouse and watercolored it with grey/black. Each of the seashells were stamped individually and colored with a variety of colors (seashell, burnt sienna,papaya cream,pixie dust, creamy brown with blue/green and yellow highlights. Cut each image out and randomly placed them along the sandy beach. Seagull was stamped in Black StazOn on white cs. Used rope around the diamond with was sponged with Aqua. Sentiment is from MFT By the Seashore which was stamped on cs sponged with Aquatic Splash.
I totally enjoyed making this card.
