Sister's Summer Swap Card!

I figured it was safe to post this card now! I participated in a swap with my SBS2 Sisters and mailed them all out last week! The theme was Summer and this is what I came up with! I brayered the background with SU! Orchid Opulence, Marigold Morning and Yo Yo Yellow with a rubber brayer to make the sun appear to be setting. I then added a brayered layer of SU! Brilliant Blue for the water. I tore and layered two pieces of Close to Cocoa to make the beach sand and added some sparkle to the water with Stickles. I used a beach stamp from Rubber Necker Co for the focal image. I paper pieced each bathing beauties bathing suit after adding a little color to each. I also popped each girl up off the sand with pop dots and did the same to each hat to make them look 3D! I drew in some birds and added a sentiment with a brad. Making these made me want to stroll on the beach! : ) Hope you like them!
