JRC_024 Beach Birthday

Hello Everyone!!!  It's Friday and that means it's another JustRite Challenge!!!  This week we are to use the sketch found on the JustRite Blog as well as use the colours Red, White and Blue!  I have to admit I struggle putting these colours together, I don't really know why, so when in doubt head to the beach!!!  :)

I've started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with Not Quite Navy punched with the embossed curve punch and then layered with white that I've also used the punch on and offset the scallops.  Next I've added a piece of Ginger Blossom DSP.  The beach scene is from JustRite's By The Sea set and I've stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G82, G99, E00, E02, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, B21, B24, R22, R29, R59).  It was cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with the Big Scallop Ovals and popped up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from the new All Occasions Sentiments and Verse set (I just LOVE this set!) and stamped in Not Quite Navy.  I notched the panel and wrapped some burlap twine around the end.  I finished by adding a few silver pearls to the corners.

Stamps - All Occasions Sentiments and Verse, By The Sea (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy, White, Ginger Blossom DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Not Quite Navy
Accessories - Copics, Large Oval Nestabilities, Big Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Burlap Twine, Embossed Curve Border Punch, Silver Pearls.

I hope you have the chance to play along and thanks for visiting!!!!  :)
