Today is the sketch challenge on SCS, and I decided since I just received this set, Beach Life, from Flourishes, to try it out.
The technique used for the beach/sky scene is called "Smackin Acetate" and is found here:http://stamptv.ning.com/ This site has been very helpful with learning new techniques, and is called StampTV with Gina K!
I tried this with copics and spraying with rubbing alcohol which has worked in the past, but it didn't this time...so I switched to regular SU markers, and even though my supply is limited, it did what I needed it to do and we have a psychedelic sunset...which I kinda like. So much for serene, this is one bright card...but it does remind me of the sunsets on the beach...I just couldn't get the shoreline to cooperate...so that will be more practice for another day!
Oh there is a boat out there, see it?
Thanks for stopping by and I have a Bahama Mama in the blender...ask my good friend from Cuba, she can tell you what's in it...but it's guaranteed to soothe the mind if it doesn't put you under the table first. The drink reminds me of this sunset, it's colorful and full of lots of Caribbean flavor!I always ask to make mine "light."
