By the Sea
A very good friend decided to give me a challenge for the card this week--to add a lemonade glass to my design. So using the JustRite "By the Sea set", Imaginisce "Splash Dance-Bubble Bash" paper and Our Craft Lounge "Sparkly fluff-Brown Sugar" I have tried to create a leisure day by the sea. I stamped the two images from By the Sea, (the chair with umbrella and the sea shells) colored them with Copics and then using a two inch Spellbinder cut them. Kraft paper was used to mount all three squares with only the center having the scallops. Sparkly fluff was used as sand around the chair and on the edges of the shell strip on the left side of the card. The glass is colored with Copic Markers on Vellum and mounted on white to give the 3-D effect. The Lemon was cut with Spellbinders, colored with copic and a white and silver pen used to make the veins. A cut was made to the center on the lemon and then mounted on the glass. A straw was cut and mounted too so that you can imagine yourself drinking lemonade, sitting in your leisure chair by the sea enjoying the last days of summer. Hope you enjoy.
