Friday Mashup #116 It's a Day at the Beach!

I don't know about you but could I use a day at the Beach!! I've been making several long road trips a few times in the last week and my body actually aches from being in the car for so long. I'll take a week at the Beach with some Sun & Sand.. but there are no beaches around here and I'm not driving to one.. lol So, I'll take this week's Mashup and pretend I'm next to a Palm tree.

Liliana is our hostess and she's taking us to the Beach and Mash'ing it up with some Masking. This was a fun challenge.. I broke out a very old retired set called Sunny Seasons.

I started with a whisper white panel then I stamped the Palm Tree using Staz On and stamped it again on a piece of scrap paper to use as a mask. I also stamped the Sun image and Masked it. Then I colored the water & sky using an Aqua Painter and inks. I drew the beach line using a marker and sponged in the Crumb Cake to create the Sand look. 

I removed the mask after everything was dry and then I colored the Palm tree, Sun & Lights with Markers and the Aqua painter. Then I added some Real Red & Dazzling Details to the Lights, Sun & Sand. 

I stamped the sentiment onto a Piece of Crumb cake and created a Banner and tied some twine around the edge. My card base is Crumb Cake and then I layered the Image piece onto some Chocolate Chip card stock. 

Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week! You might want to go to the Beach after seeing all their fun cards!
