Let's Go to the Beach

This week's challenge at Stamping with the Dragon is Summer Fun and what can be better than going to the beach?  The twist this week is to use this sketch:

As you can see, I just flipped it.  The sketch is from Maya and you can find this sketch here.  I used the Summer Fun image from Stamping Dragon Designs and tweaked it just a little.  Instead of a circle, I decided I wanted an oval - that's the beauty of digital stamps.  And for another change - I didn't use Copics; I used chalks and a couple Zig markers to color this image in.  Chalks are great to use because you can erase your mistakes (it's hard staying in the lines when you're using a little round ball and tweezers :-)  ).  I also used a Martha Stewart punch that I found at my local craft store called Cherish on my matting an strip of paper and some Glossy Accents on the beach ball.  The sentiment is a sticker from Creative Memories that I've had for quite a while.

You have two weeks to upload your Summer Fun project at Stamping with the Dragon.  Be sure to see all the other Summer Fun projects the rest of the design team has for you too.

This card was published in the July, 2011 issue of Scrapbook, News and Review magazine.
