Relaxing By The Shore



I made this card for a friends birthday. We live near the beach and I just love this calm look. I found this set at a yard sale last summer and hadn't used it yet, so it was time I put it to good use ;)

I am having fun with the Koh-I-Noor pencils and the mineral spirits. They give it such a nice look.

I stamped the chair and lady separately and lifted them up on dimensionals just at the edge of the oval.




Set: Sketches, Summer by the Sea, by The Sea Wheel
Cardstock: River Rock, Bashful Blue, Whisper White

Ink: StazOn Black, Creamy Caramel...and I used the Koh-I-Noor Pencils w/OMS
Accessories: Pewter HP, Non-SU Ribbon, Coluzzle
