Sandy Toes by Sharon Harnist

Hello Pink Ink Fans -- Sharon Harnist back with you today, with another fun Summer project!  My family is headed to the beach soon and I can not wait to feel the warm sand between my toes and listen to the crashing waves!

 Pink Ink's Beachtown Fence, Beach Sign, and Sandy Toes sentiment helped me prepare for my vacation! 

Here are a few steps I used to create this card:

After stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, I tore a piece of scrap paper to use as a mask and airbrushed Copic B00 on the background, to create ocean waves. I tried not to get any overspray on the image but if I did, I used the Copic Colorless Blender marker to remove any unwanted overspray from the image.

Once I was finished airbrushing the background, I just colored the water between the fence posts with the lightest Copic B00 marker by hand.

Then I colored the rest of the images with these Copic markers:

To create the crashing surf, I dipped a cotton swab in Copic Opaque White and dabbed it along the edges of the airbrushed waves I created:

To finish the card I stamped the Sandy Toes sentiment onto white cardstock, then Copic color distressed it using C2 and E41. It was hand trimmed into a banner shape and adhered with foam tape.

Thanks so much for joining me today -- I hope you are enjoying your Summer!
