Life’s a beach…..

Hello there. I have a CAS card to share today which stretched my Copic colouring knowledge – research was undertaken! – to create a beach scene:

I used Make It colour blending card and stamped the Clearly Besotted scene onto the bottom of it in Gina K amalgam ink.

Once stamped, I then turned to the tinterweb and searched for ideas on colours and ‘how to‘ colour a beach scene and the sea. Most of the colours and methods came from watching Mindy Baxter do her magic – very inspiring. I added some more colours – and actually used a couple of different ‘blues’ for the sea as I didn’t want it too dark or even too light – but kudos to her for her easy to follow instructions.

Here is a picture of the colours I used:

I think I missed the dark brown Copics somehow!

I find taking a picture of the colours helps me to look back and see what I was happy with, and what combination of colours I may use again. I do write these down in a note book – very OCD at the moment – and write where I have used them on what card and what post so I can easily look back and see if I was happy with the colours or not.

The card was then die cut using some stitched rectangle frames, then adhered to a white card base. The Make It card isn’t thick enough to be used as a one layer card, so if I want to do one of those, I tend to colour on Neenah Classic Crest – but I find that doesn’t blend as well, so I have to choose my colours carefully – or colour using another medium.

I hope you are all well and managing to stay sane……!
