TE Sneak Peek: Hangin’ Out - at the Beach

beach scene

Are you enjoying all the TE Sneak peeks like me?  They’ve just been fabulous – I love the different styles represented with all the designers, everyone putting a unique spin on their creations!  Today I am sharing a card I made using the new Whimsical Wishes stamp set Hangin’ Out -at the Beach illustrated by Nancy McKinney!  I wanted to make a serene beach scene with inks so I went to Michelle Zindorf’s blog for inspiration, her tutorials are always so easy to follow.  I used copics to color my palm trees and paper-pieced the hammock (and I apologize I can’t remember what paper I used right now!)   This card makes me think of that I would LOVE to  put up a hammock at our property, not far from the house we have 3 trees that we could easily put up 3 hammocks!  How fun would that be? Here’s a tip: I brayered/sponged my background on a sheet of choice snow white cardstock and then stamped, colored, cut out & outlined the palm trees with a brown marker and glued them on, that way I didn’t have to mask anything.  I added a seagull at the top of the palm tree and a greeting hanging from the top of the card to finish off my card.

Jodi is totally right...what a dreamy scene you created with a little simple brayering! I'm feeling inspired to use my brayer again!

LOOOOVE your scene. I want to color like you do when I grow up! The paper pieced hammock and your sentiment treatment are such a wonderful touch this exquisite card!

This is so much fun! I love the little seagull on top of the tree and the tag with the twine is perfect!
