Hey there, I'm super excited to be participating in a product swap between Taylored Expressions and Bazzill Basics.  Woot woot!  I absolutely LOVE Bazzill and use their cardstock on just about every project!  They have awesome pattern papers too!

My project today is to honor all those dads out there.  I started by punching a 1" circle sticky note mask for the sun then masking the horizon.  I sponged Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Peanut Brittle, Potter's Clay and Lady Bug for the sky.  The circle mask was removed and Dandelion and Cantaloupe were sponged on the sun.  A new mask was put into place to cover the sky and another jagged mask was torn for the sand.  Summer Sky, Bahama Blue and Paris Dusk were sponged for the water.  The masks were removed and Desert Sand was sponged on the bottom.  A Sakura White Glaze pen was used to dot the surf where the chairs were going to be and to draw lines in the ocean (waves).  The chairs are from A Day in Paradise (love this set!).  They were stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut.  Before they were glued to the panel, Copic markers were used to create shadows in the sand.  A sailor's knot and sentiment tag complete the card.

Here's a close up pic of the knot...

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!
