Link in the chain - June

It's reveal time at Card Chain Challenge - mine is winging its way to Dawn in New Zealand this time.

From the options for June I chose the theme (beach) and sort of followed the sketch. As the card needed to go half way round the world it’s a single layer to keep it light and flat for airmailing - masking is always a useful technique when you want a “layered” image without actually using layers!

I used a stiff stencil brush to stipple various light brown and yellowish inks to give the sandy strip the appearance of some texture

Antique Engravings and Color Layering Waves (both Hero Arts)
Seaside (Crafty Secrets, no longer with us)

Bristol board 

Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Tumbled Glass)
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Latte)

Copic markers 
Brown fineliner 
White paint pen by Posca

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe.

Clean and fun summer card with the sand writing...your shells are lovely. That punch of bright blue....Bless you for stippling. I don't have a lot of patience for it.

hugs Margot

This is beautiful! I love beach themed cards and stuff (even though I too rarely make them myself).
