Charming Beach Scene

Fresh Brewed Designs is having a Charming Challenge?

February 9 - 15


Participants are asked to use a charm on their entries.



I decided to try something quite different for my card. I used two Fresh Brewed Designs images. One of them (Peace Be Still) I printed quite large - large enough to practically fit the entire card front. The other image (Grace Summertime) I printed very small in order to make her fit the size of the beach scene.



I colored both images with Copics and used only one layer of cardstock under the larger image.





I cut out the little girl and popped her up off the beach image to create some depth to the scene. I added a fish charm with a small piece of lavendar gingham ribbon.




Now, if I could just find that beach in real life. I'd love to be there, enjoying the warmth of the setting sun.



Images: Fresh Brewed Designs
Ink: Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Cool Carribean and Pale Plum
Embellishments: ribbon and fish charm (vendors unknown)
