Daydream Designs - Beachscapes - I Need Some Beach Therapy!

 
I love the beach!  It helps that I live in a resort town with an amusement park/beach that's full of summer fun, relaxation, and lots of sunny therapy!
 
I also LOVE this digi collection from Daydream Designs called Beachscapes.  The chair and umbrella are from the Beachscapes Outline set.  The chair reminds me of the lawn chairs I enjoyed relaxing in when visiting my grandparents many years ago!
 
After printing the image onto Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir 100 lb ultra smooth cardstock, I cut the panel so it would layer onto a 4 1/2 x 7 cardbase.  I sponged the background using distress inks and then coloring the images with Copic markers.  I used a small dot stamp inked with versamark ink and stamped it randomly before sprinkling with Frantage embossing powder.  I embellished the bottom of my card using a small wooden picket fence and added a small starfish.  The clouds were punched using a fiskars punch; the sentiment is printed on one of the clouds...I Need Some Beach Therapy!
 
You'll find the Beachscapes digital stamp collection at Daydream Designs online store.

Vickie, this is beautiful. I'm now longing for a trip to Oregon.
