Penny Black Beach Card

Hi everyone,

I would like to share a fun beach themed card I made using Penny Black Stamps. The stamp set is called Fun in the Sun and features adorable little Mimi.

Here's a look at the card:

I coloured all of the images with Prismacolour markers. 

The pattern papers are from Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine paper pack. 

Both the wave stamp and palm trees are from a Studio G set. I cut out two sets of waves and placed them behind the sand layer which I popped up on foam squares.

I used Doodlebug's Sugar Coating glitter in yellow on the starfish to make them really sparkle. I also went over the surfboards, sun rays and her heart glasses with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.  

I just free-handed the cloud and lightly sponged on some Distress Ink in peacock feathers.

I used Folk Art's texture paint to give the sand a realistic look. I then painted it with antique gold acrylic paint.

Here's a closer look at the sand:
