Fun in the sun!

Hello everyone!

I love building up scenes! And to beat the heat, I created a summer-cool 'fun in the sun' creation! I had a very cute beach scene die from a long time which I won from my dear crafty friend KT Fit Kitty and I wanted to use it in my fun creation! Hope You will like it Kitty!
        I die cut the beach scene out of a white CS, then pop out the pieces and colored them with my Staedtler pencils. Added glossy accents to them for dimension. Now For the scalloped circle, I used distress inks and watercolored it, then added Wink of Stella shimmer to it for some shining!
           Now on a white CS I used My Beach scene die cut for embossing.
Adhered my scallop circle on embossed part and added all small die cut pieces to the scene, How fun!
        Adding sand effect to the card is easier than you think. I tore two pieces of white paper randomly and water colored it using distress ink. To create a shoreline, I distressed the edges too.  Then added some splatters for more textures. Then adhered it to my card base.
        Then I die cut paradise Palms and colored them using my Zig markers and glossy accent them. And created the whole scene. For the sentiment, I stamped it on a black scrap piece and heat embossed it and trimmed it on an angle, Then I die cut Sunshine sentiment out of black scrap CS and glossy accent it and adhere it on my scene. Now I added this panel to my card base and adhered scallop border at the top and enamel dots to finish it!!

I totally had a great time in creating this fun scene! Didn't you guys!!!!

White and Black CS
Dies: Beach scene from Die-Versions; Rectangles from Tattered lace; Paradise palms from Spellbinders; Stitched scalloped edges from Die-namics; Sunshine from Simon says stamps
