Beach Dreams

Hello.  Gail here today.
March already!  Hope you are getting some Spring vibes. 
 This guy is still deep in winter, but dreams of the summer.  
Lazy days on the beach.  Sun, sea and sand. Roll on warm weather, roll on!!!!

         Dare 2 B Artzy Midnight Blue Dye Ink

Crafty Individuals Miniatures 'People and Places 2'
Grey Wood patterned paper
White card

Start by stamping the boy from the Penguins On Ice Winter Holiday Rubber Stamp Sheet on the grey woodgrain paper and fussy cut.  

Colour the image with Mustard Seed and Stormy Sky distress inks.

Smear three shades of blue distress inks onto some white card and spritz with water.

Use the small cluster of snowflake stamps from the Penguins On Ice Sheet.  These look a bit steampunk with that cog thing going on. Stamp them randomly on the distress inked background using Dare 2 B Artzy Midnight Blue dye ink.

Then use silver ink with the same stamps.

Use a die to cut a 3 x 4" journal card from the background and ink the edges with the Midnight Blue ink.  Smear some VersaMark on the bottom of the journal card and use Baked Texture Embossing Powder Dirty Sand to make a little beach.

Add the boy and place a beach picture in his hand.  
This is a printed image from a pad of images from Crafty Individuals called 'People and Places 2'.  I cut it down and added a black mat behind to frame it.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you feel inspired to stamp something pretty today.  Hugz
