This week I made a beach scene for the challenge on Stamp TV-What shell we create? I am also entering it in the Mod Squad Challenge - Make a background and Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle.
I sponged the background, using various ink, onto a piece of ivory cardstock. I'm not sure I am happy with the sky part, but I wanted to make the sky different from the water so I went with a very light blue. I don't have any Gina K stamps that would go with a beach scene. I thought of trying to make a sand castle by masking some of the stamps I have, but that didn't work too well so I just left it as a scene.
I stamped the sentiment on a rectangular piece of cardstock, rounded the opposite corners and sponged the edges. I layered the background with some blue cardstock, and adhered that to an ivory card base. I attached the sentiment with some foam dots. I thought it needed something else so I added a few birds in the sky.
