A Day at the Beach


Hold onto your hats, Friends!  I'm posting AGAIN...lol!  I haven't posted for three weeks, and now, I've posted four days in a row.  I'll hold off for a couple of days now...I promise!  My friend Linda loves Impression Obsession stamps, well she really loves many stamp companies, but she plays along in the Impression Obsession challenge most weeks.  I have one of their stamps.  It's called, "A Day at the Beach - H1743" and it is the one that you see here.  After seeing Linda's beautiful card for this week's challenge (Red, White, and Blue), I decided to ink my beach stamp up and give it a try too.  Please click here to play along in the Impression Obsession challenge. 

It was so much fun to color up this beautiful image.  It took me awhile and it took a boatload of Copic Markers, but I enjoyed every minute of it!  Here is the list of Copic Markers (B00, B02, B12, B23, B24, BG53, C1, E23, E40, E41, E42, R20, R27, R30, R32, R39, Y11, YG61, and the Colorless Blender.)  My card base is kraft and I used navy layers.  My only other accents are the large red gingham ribbon and some paper piecing.  I kept things simple so that my image would be the focus. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with me.  I'll see you soon...Toodles!  :D

The time you took coloring DID pay off, and you are right using understated matting and layering helps showcasing the stamp.

Nicely done. Who knew you could make a beach scene red/white and blue? Love the red chair. Red is such a hard color to use - mine always get streaking and too dark, but yours looks perfect. Love it.
