Beach Life

Its another peek at Flourishes newest set called, Beach Life. You can pick this up at Stamper's Dream, starting Friday night. LOVE this set too. I always say that, but Flourishes is really knocking it out of the park!!

Its a very simple card, but with the laid-back, summery feel, you gotta keep it simple, right? :) The palm trees were stamped on the kraft paper and I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the image in. To create the sunset-ish background, I colored in layers, like a real sunset. Prismacolors are so soft, you can really blend them easily, especially when you keep to the side of the pencil. I over stamped a script background stamp to add that postcard essence.

My CHA projects are all complete and shipped! Whew! Now I cannot wait to get to the show and see everything and everyone!!

thanks for stopping by!!
