I did four different projects this month, but I'm only showing you two for now!
I absolutely love the new Silhouette Set 493. If you did our last month's hop, you'll recognize it. I also used it for the Sketch Challenge for May. Make sure you check out the challenge this month, you have 'till the end of the month to enter. This set is so versatile, just by changing the colors used, you can get an entirely different look every time. So this time I made a beach scene using the Silhouette set and some watercolor crayons. I stamped in brown StazOn instead of black, to make it look more natural. Adding a little Florida Beach Glitter here and there, and some Sparkling Snow glitter for the waves, to give it a little bling, like the sun was reflecting off the water.
For the inside of the card, I incorporated some stamps from another set - 403 By the Seashore:
You can find complete directions in my gallery here.
For my second card, I decided to use some Beach Glass Mudd Puddles, and yet another "beachy" set 404 - Ocean Treasures. I colored the shells with Copics and stuck them to a piece of 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. I then applied Sparkling Sands Sparkle N Soft to the remaining exposed tape, to give the look of the shells lying in the sand:
I used one of the Tide Embossing Folders, that SNS carries for my "waves". You'll find complete directions here for the above card.
Stop by in the next couple of weeks and I'll have the other projects posted.
Now it's time to hop on over to the ever-inspiring Brenda to see what she has done with the beach theme.
Have a great day!
