Today is release day for the latest from the Summer of Stamping by Ellen Hutson. I’m so happy to share the new Everything Beachy stamp set with you.
The images in this set are ideal for scene building and that is just what I did. I stamped the umbrella, woman and towel and colored them with Copic Markers. Once colored, I fussy cut the images for layering. Next up, I wanted to figure out how to evoke a beach feel without tons more coloring.
To do that, I started with Neenah Desert Storm card stock and inked direct to paper with a Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink Mini. Then I added a bit of texture paste for the surf. Easy and it totally gives an ocean feel. I chose this fun sentiment and cut it using the Nice of You die set (it has something for almost any small straight sentiment!).
Last, I just had to finish the building. I added foam tape underneath all the images and the sentiment. On the umbrella, I doubled the foam tape closest to my bathing beauty to give if a bit of an angle.
I hope you enjoy this inspiration! Make sure you hop over to see all the new products from the release today: Summer of Stamping Release
