Tupelo Designs LLC - Beach Day!

Happy Friday! It's my day to post for Tupelo Designs LLC! Every Friday I feature a project with goodies from the Tupelo Designs LLC Store! With so many different brands to chose from the hardest part is deciding what to play with. I decided to celebrate summer with this adorable set from My Favorite Things called Beach Day!


There's lots of masking going on with this background.  I started with the sand at the bottom.  I hand cut a piece of scrap big enough for the width of an A2 size card, and cut it in half with a slight curve.

I held the top half on my card stock panel in place and started distressing the sand with Ranger Antique Linen and Old Paper.  Next I splattered it with Ranger Broken Twigs ink that I added a little water to.  

When that was dry I got to work on the top half starting with the sun.  I cut a hole in a piece of scrap paper and inked in the sun with Ranger Squeezed Lemonade, and Mustard Seed.  Next I removed the mask and placed the circle over the inky sun and started applying distress ink in  Tumbled Glass around the sun.
I die cut some clouds and used it as a mask for the clouds, starting at the bottom  - inking the clouds, and then and working my way up an inch at a time. 
The image of the girl was inked with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating Beach Day die set.   A gel pen was used to add some freckles to her little sun blushed cheeks!
