Now, onto my entry for this week...
Can you tell I'm on a beach kick this month? I am really enjoying using my beach stamps while I can. This is one of my favorite images, and I think that it fits this card really well. With the MMSC10 sketch this week, I really pondered how I could make this card different and still pretty and beachy. Well, what I decided was to make the oval scalloped nesties for the top and bottom to sort of portray a clam shell and put the image of the little girl on the beach in the middle of it. I was so pleased with how it turned out. I dry embossed the background paper to make it look like a big beach and added some real seashells to the bottom. If you enlarge the picture, you will see her sunkissed skin and some sparkle in her hair and her dress. I hope you enjoy my sample card for this week's sketch, and I look forward to seeing how many ways that you come up with to work this sketch.
I am also entering this card in the Belli challenge which is asking for texture on a card this week, and in the 365 challenge which is asking for bubbles. I love that I could fit this card into 3 challenges. I am getting better. I will try to do more as I go.
Please do leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week!!
