I hope you've had a chance to check out ODBD's August Release - I am loving the beach elements! Growing up in landlocked Arkansas, we never went to the beach. But now - it's one of my favorite places to go... and it's close enough that we can just go for the weekend. Here's a picture of my dog's first time on the beach. He was not fond of the waves at all - nor the sand - but I think he enjoyed the breeze and the view.
But on to the card...
I love it when I am able to combine several sets into one card. For the front of my card, I used the new image from Anchor the Soul. I sponged the sand and the sky and used Copics to color in the details. The white gel pen was also handy for little seagull. For my seashells, I did some radial scoring on the corner of my paper and cut out a seashell shape. I sponged it to bring out the grooves and then used my stylus to give the shells some curves.
I continued with the sponging on the inside of the card. I like to put my sentiment somewhere other than the middle so that when I write in the inside of the card, my writing is not broken up.
