I used Distress Inks and and some masking to create my beach scene. First, I tore some copy paper and used one piece to mask off for the sand and the other piece to mask the sand to sponge the see. I used a straight piece of paper to mask between the sea and the sky. To create the sky, I used a cloud die as a mask. To add some grains to the sand, I stamped off once with the Cracks & Specks stamp by Tim Holtz. I added some white gel pen waves and froth on the sea, but it's hard to see in the photos.
Once my background was finished I die-cut an oval frame using Blueprints 2. On the left-hand side of a top-folding card base, I adhered a strip of pale yellow striped paper and a tiny sliver of black. I then popped up the oval-less background with foam tape, recessed the oval frame and added the center with more foam tape. The banana chocolate chip ice-cream the bunny is holding was stamped then masked before I over-stamped the bunny. I removed the mask and colored her with Copics before fussy-cutting her out and attaching her to the card. I finished the card with a stamped sentiment.
