Today I decided to play along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. The sketch is horizontal, but I actually liked Mercy's example where is was flipped vertical (and I really wanted to use these new palm trees!!! :) ). I was also STOKED to see my friend Silke is the October Muse for this challenge!! CONGRATULATIONS SILKE!!!! :)
I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Not Quite Navy and some Bella Bleu DSP. The circular panel is more Bella Bleu DSP cut with Large Circle Nesties and matted with NQN Scallop Circle Nesties. Across the bottom of the circle I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black using SU's retired Warmest Regards. The main panel has been stamped using Flourishes Beach Life set in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla card. First I stamped the trees and then made a mask and then stamped the beach stamp. It was coloured using markers and a blender pen, cut out using the Curved Mega Rectangle Nestabilities and popped up on foam tape. Finally I finished with some large chocolate brads along the top and some natural twine wrapped around the circle overlapping the beach scene.
