The gals over at Double Trouble had me getting out my Kraft cs. I dry embossed it and then created the beach scene on white Text Vellum with my new Soft Pastels. I had ordered them months ago and they were on the slow boat from China, literally. Once I had created the sky, ocean and beach, I smeared the top with clear gesso to seal in the pastels. When that was dry I stamped the grass and birds and sponged in the navy ink along the top. Added white highlights with gel pen then cut to size and adhered to Kraft cs. Stamped sentiment in black ink and added round raised dots. Mounted all on white cs base.
Oh, and for the twisted sister and optional twist, the kids playing with a red wagon are just out of the scene on the beach.
