Beach bears


     It's definitely beach weather time....if you can take the extreme heat.
     For this card I've used several stamps from the recent Happy Trails release from Purple Onion Designs.  
     The sky was created by adding Distress ink to a craft sheet, spraying it with water and dragging the piece of watercolor paper through it.  The sand was stamped and colored with Distress inks.


Copics Used:
bear E31, E35, R30
mouse W1, W3, W5, R20, R30
clothing R27, R37
umbrella BG72, Y32, YR21, N1, N3
coconut tree YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, E21, E23, E25, E71, E74, E79

     All the images were fussy cut after stamping.  I tried for a little 3-D effect on the umbrella, bears, and palm tree by layering with some foam tape.


Have a blessed day!

Supplies:
Paper--Canson XL watercolor paper, Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card

Party goat


     Things have finally slowed down enough that I have been able to make a few cards.  This one was made quite a while ago but I'm posting now to coordinate with the release of this set in the Art Impressions store.  AI usually allows their retail sellers to sell the sets first and then they put them in their own store for sale.  Several farm sets are now available at AI like those crazy chickens and this fun Old Goat set.
