Beach/sun masks were cut and the sunset was sponged first. The beach mask remained in place but the circle mask was removed so color could be sponged onto the sun, leaving a thin strip of white to help set it off and make it glow. Next, the sky was masked and the beach was sponged.
The speckled stamp from Hangin' Loose with Kona adds interest to the beach. The silhouettes were stamped in black ink using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. A Copic marker was used to freehand draw the two panels to match the grass in the main image. A white gel pen was used to add highlights to all of the images. A sailor's knot made from twine completes the card; you can find the tutorial for the knot here.
