Beach Friends

A silhouette beach card for a best friend. Easy to make w/ this new palm tree die, a couple of stencils and some colorful ink.

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC916) we are visiting McGaw Graphics & their Pinterest Board. I used THIS picture for my inspiration.

My beachy card was made w/ some new die cuts, a couple of stencils and some ink. I die cut the beach scene w/ the boat, cloud, fence & chairs once out of black and twice out of white. I used a sunburst stencil for the sky part, by first sponging the yellows. Then I rotated the stencil to cover the yellow rays & sponged on the blue. When I removed the stencil, I added the yellows for the sun. I used a hill stencil to add the sand then reversed it, added a straight piece of paper to mask off the sky & sponged in the water. I added some puffy paint along the shore. The black die cuts were attached on top of the 2 white versions, w/ the white ones being offset on either side to add contrast.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
