Beach day...


It's time for a new Scenic Saturday card over on the Bellarific Blog. With temps on the rise lately it has definitely begun to feel like summer is upon us. And I don't know about you but when it gets hot like this all I want to do is lounge by some cool waters. So when it came time to get crafty I was really feeling the vibe of Curvy Girl Loves the Beach. She has everything one needs for a chill day spent ocean side... good reads, tasty beverages and plenty of sunscreen. I got a little help setting the beachy scene for Curvy by masking her off and inking up Rosie and Bernie's Palm Tree, which I then stamped on top of her. I also stamped the sentiment over top her a bit because I knew I wanted to color it into a wood sign on the beach. Notice that I lost a couple of letters in the word 'sometimes' but ya know what... that okay! As readers our minds automatically fill in those missing letters and no one is left wondering what the sentiment says. And once I pulled off the mask, pushing the sentiment and tree behind her, it makes perfect sense why we can't read the entire sign. So don't be afraid to get creative with your stamping, building layers and depth into your scenic creations.  :)

Stay crafty my friends!
