At the Beach

Good Morning.
Time for a summertime card and besides, who wouldn't love relaxing on a beach somewhere.

This card was super easy to create using images from a sweet Penny Black set called Summer Fun.
The set is filled with fun, summer images just perfect for creating little vignettes.
I began by creating my background.  You can see my Mini Pictorial here about how I did it

When that was drying, I stamped the chair and the flip flops, fussy cut them out and then coloured them using my Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment, then pop dotted the chair and flip flops over the beachy background.
Using my ScorPal, I scored a frame around the panel which helped give it a bit more presence.

Hope you are enjoying your summer.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Love those flip flops! They're much prettier than any I have! Oh, to be sitting at the beach...a northern beach. It's too hot in the south!

What a gorgeous seaside card Karen - love the wonderful warm colours in the deck chair and flip flops. I am just starting to wear my flip flops again, as spring is gradually beginning here in the antipodes.
