Another Tropical Beach Scene

Hello there.  I intended to post this card yesterday, but a mishap right at the end almost got it tossed! 😂 I was not feeling well, so I left it instead.  Waking up this morning and thinking clearly with a fresh set of eyes, I saved it!


I just got this sweet Beach Scene die from Pretty Pink Posh and wanted to use it before it collected dust. 🙈  Started by die cutting the beach scene from a scrap of mixed media paper.  Using Zig markers and a waterbrush, watercoloured the individual die-cut sections.  Spritz them with a Sparkle spray for some shimmer.   While they dried, applied Kraft ink with a blending brush through a Wave stencil onto Kraft cardstock for a tone-on-tone look.


Assembling the beach scene onto the Kraft panel was like doing a jigsaw puzzle.  Added Crystal Glaze to the surfboard for some dimension... and then it happened!  Wasn’t paying attention and smeared the glaze all over the sand, onto the circle frame and even onto the Kraft panel!  So this morning, another beach scene was die cut from mixed media paper.  Watercoloured the sand section to replace the old one, stacked the circle frame to cover up and used a sand eraser to remove from the Kraft panel - all fixed!


Heat embossed the sentiment directly onto the Kraft panel with white embossing powder to finish.  Whew!  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day.

You are so talented, my friend! LOVE this sweet beach scene ... and so creative to add the circle frame and the wave stenciling in the background. Great idea to walk away and take a fresh look the next day ... great work to save this wonderful card! xx

Great save for this card! This scene makes me want to put on a swim suit (which I swore I'd never do again) and head to the beach. Vibrant colors and a fun scene. So glad you were able to fix it.

You did such an amazing job with this beach scene, Trina! I love your ink blended background and how you applied the stenciled wave to your card base...very clever! I also love all the shimmer you added to the surfboard! Great save on your little 'mishap', too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS!
