Hi there! It’s time for another Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC592) at the MFT Blog and I’m sharing a beach card with detailed sand that I hope will inspire you to participate.
When I saw the sketch, I first thought of a slice of Swiss cheese, LOL! My next thought was polaroid pictures and then my mind jumped to summer vacation and beaches…
I started by stamping three of the images and one of the sentiments from the YUZU Island Shell-ebration stamp set on a 2 7/8″ x 3 1/2″ panel of Copic friendly card stock. For the left element, I also cut a strip of card stock measuring 1″ x 3 1/2″.
Next, I used the following Copic markers for the coloring: R27, R24, R22, Y65, Y63, E59, E57, E53, E51, E50, W1 and W00. I did some light shading as a base for the sand and then I started drawing a bunch of little dots…
…both with the markers as with Prismacolor pencils. I used darker shades around the three images to make them stand out a little bit more.
Once I was done with the coloring, I adhered a couple of same sized panels behind the main ones for a little bit of volume.
Lastly I stamped the beautiful Rippled Background stamp on an A2 panel of Caribbean Sea Card Stock using Blue Yonder Premium Dye Ink. To finish the card, as a last touch I added some clear crystal drops. If you enjoyed it, you might like this slimline beach card with detailed sand or this realistic beach card.
