A day at the Beach

Enjoy summer

This is one of Isabella Designs images. When I first seen it I just fell in love with the image. I think it is so cute. Wanted to join in on Isabella's challenge, Challenge #5 this week and it is a good one. You can do anyone of her images and you can win 6 of her images and I know I would love to get some of her images for Free, she has some beautiful ones. If you would like to check out some of her images you can click here and see them or if you would like to join in on her challenge you can click here and go to her challenge blog.

The stamp is from Great Impressions it is wonderful saying and how true that is. The paper is from Heidi Grace designs and that is manufactured for Fiskars and made in the USA. Stamped the saying with Brilliance Sky Blue ink and used a template to sponge the sky on the background on the image. The corner punch used is from Family Treasures. Colored my image with copic markers and also used the copic multiliners 0.3 markers. White Gel Pen- Pastel American Craft. Something a friend told me and I will share it with you because it works but I do it a little different. She told me that she take her white pens and puts it in her hand so it warms up and rolls it back and forth. I have a hard time doing that because of my Arthritis in both my hands so when I go to my craft room I know I will be using my white Pen so I sit on it so when I need it I know where it is and it is all warm and it really works, my inks flows out beautifully. So if you have a hard time getting your white pens to work give it a try, you do not need to sit on your but if you can think of something better, let me know. The ribbon I just love I got it at Joann's and it sure works with the theme. Used Diamond Glaze from Judi Kins on the Penguins to give then a little shine. The embellishments are from Dress it up Mosaics Style #7. I almost forgot I use my Styrofoam Fluff to make it look like sand that everyone is walking on. I hope you like my card. If you do like me know by leaving a comment.

Patricia, thanks for the wonderful pen tip. I really needed that one. You colored that beach scene perfectly and those little penguins are adorable with their coats of glaze AND perfect "sand". I am going to have to look into that as it gives such depth to the ground. Thanks for sharing your art with is at Isabella's Sketchbook.
