This week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to make an Artist Trading Card. The only rules are the card must be 2.5 X 3.5.” Our stay at the lake this summer inspired me to make this mini scene.
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Extra Details: I began with a 2.5 x 3.5 inch rectangle of water color paper. I lightly drew a wiggly line in pencil. This would be where the beach and water would meet. Then I ink blended some Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink on the beach area. I used Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean Distress Inks for the water area.
I used the same inks and second generation stamping to add the heart, “stones”, and waves. I used some white pigment ink to add some waves. I used the same ink and a stiff paint brush to add the surf where the water and beach meet.
I LOVE this and will be making a larger card using the same design sometime soon.
