A beach scene, and Just Add Ink #369

It's really hot here in AZ, so I've been thinking about the beach for quite a while.  I sure miss being 90min away.    This card makes me feel like I can smell the salt air and feel the cool breezes.  Sigh....

So, when JAI came up with THIS,  challenge, I just had to make an ocean card.

The chair is part of the dies that pair with Colorful Seasons.  Fabulous set, it has stamps and dies for all year round.    The ocean and birds are from High Tide, and the umbrella is from Weather together.

Since I grew up along the CA coastline, I can easily picture the ocean and the seagulls flying over head, even inland quite a way.

So, I used Sahara Sand for my base card, then using Whisper White I started by stamping my ocean, bringing it down far enough so my sand would cover it.  I then used my dobber to fill in the ocean color with Marina Mist.
I then used the land stamp for around the lighthouse in High Tide to add some color in Crumb Cake to my 1 1/2" strip of Sahara Sand, then tore the top and layered that to the bottom of my card.
Next I used a dobber and Peekaboo peach for a line of color just above the water, then did the same with So Saffron, then finished off with Marina Mist.
Added in my chair, and umbrella. I cut the curved handle part off the die cut of the umbrella handle so it could stick right into the sand.    The birds were then stamped in with black.

I really hope you enjoy. Here is the challenge.

Oh your summer beach scene looks so warm and inviting, Lynn! I love the depth of colour to your ocean and the details you've added to your sand to make it look realistic. It is mid winter here in Australia and your card reminds me of a summer holiday - so lovely :-) Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week!
