Beach Outlines

This is my card for SC235 sketch challenge. I love this sketch, and I love the way this card turned out. The images all come from one stamp: Split Layering Collage-Seaside from a company called Outlines Rubber Stamp Company. The stamp was part of my birthday gift from my sister Lisa. Thanks LiLi!! See the pic of the stamp below. I stamped the image on Solar White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink 3 times and colored the areas I wanted to use with Copics. I used a 1" circle punch to cut out the colored images.


You can't see it in the picture, but I used my atyou spica glitter pen to add sunny sparkle to each of the 9 images. I love the way it looks when the light hits it!
The card is 5.25" square. I used retired SU Cool Caribbean as the base. The next layer is Pacific Point topped with a layer of white which is run through the Cuttlebug. I sponged Cool Caribbean ink on the embossed layer to give it interest and dimension. The 1" circles are matted on black and then Pacific Point scalloped circles, all of which are cut with circle nestabilities. I finished it off with Melon Mambo 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Voila! Time to hit the beach!
