Beach Please! -Clean & Simple "A Blog Named Hero" Current Challenge


I'm so glad you stopped by! For me, clean and simple cards (aka, CAS) are the hardest to make.  You really can't cover the boo-boos and that scares me!  Today I'm using the Hero Arts "Beach Please" Stamp'n Cut set, some distress inks, colored pencils and plain 'ol sand.  The supplies are linked below (afil--thank you!!)

First, I cut a circle out of masking paper (regular paper would work too!) and diecut the dog on the towel to use as a mask as well.  I stamped the dog, then placed the mask over it (trimming it down a hair.)  I blended the distress inks a little to make a blurry beach, water, sky scene.  

I inked up the sun and misted water over it and the background, patting with a paper towel in a few seconds for droplet effect.  I colored the dog with pencils, using Gamsol to blend.  I added shimmer to the sun and water line along with sand on the beach.  To finish I stamped the sentiment and added Glossy Accents to the sunglasses and necklace.  

To finish I put a few clear sequins to brighten things up!  That's it!  Here are the supplies I used:
