Beach Fun card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "A Day At The Beach".

This card was a lot of fun to make, I normally I love to change something from a non-Halloween thing to a Halloween thing, and really enjoyed doing it the other way around, turning something Halloweens into something non-Halloweens. Like I turned the Bat Crazy bats into seagulls.
I started withthe background and adding lots of Washi Tape in different colors and sizes. On top of that I used White Gesso and as always a layer of Clear Gesso to finish it off.


When everything was dry, I colored the Crystal Sands Texture Paste with Opal Magic Paint Yellow-Pink and used it with the Halftone stencil. It was a challenge due to the grain of the sand.
Then I added a little more color with Liquid Acrylics True Yellow and Burnt Sienna. For the air, I used Infusions A Bit Jaded and Liquid Acrylics Deep Turquoise, after first painting the top half with Opal Magic Blue Gold.
For the bottom I first applied Opal Magic Paint Yellow-Pink and then Nuvo Shimmer Powder and Infusions Golden Sands.
