I was able to put this card together pretty quickly on Tuesday and if you're a blog follower - you'll see why:
Recognize the image? It's the same one I used for the There She Goes Mother Of All Blog Hops earlier in the month. This was the first image I colored up and realized it didn't fit the size of card I wanted to make, so it has been sitting on my craft desk. Until.....the Skipping Stones Design#130 Color Inspiration Challenge was posted. All I needed was to add some yellow to the card. After finding the Retro Sketches #13 challenge - I added my scallops as 'clouds' and a single scallop for the yellow sun!
I didn't need to use a Skipping Stones stamp to qualify for their challenge, but I always like to represent the Company's blog I'm playing along with IF I have their stamps - so I used a sentiment from the Dogs Volume#1 set. I always feel like having a drink when I'm laying on a beach!
I also added some white enamel accents to the 'ocean' and lapping water and some bronze to the darker areas of the beach.
Here's the Retro Sketch and the Skipping Stones Design color challenge:
