Mark's Finest Papers



For my card today, I first embossed my image with a suede ink and clear embossing powder.
I brayered the background with a yellow, red and a berry ink to create my sky. I was trying to create a tropical looking scene.
I sponged the bottom of the card with a light blue ink to create my water.  At the horizon, I used another shade of blue.

I stamped my sentiment in a suede ink. I sponged in the sand on the image with a crumb cake ink and then used a toothbrush to flick in some suede ink to make it look like sand.

That's my card for today. See you back here tomorrow for the final day of the hop. I will send you over to Marilynn's blog for the next stop.

Some other challenges:
1.  4 Crafty Chicks has a by the sea challenge.
2.  Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge is "anythinggoes with transportation.
