I have been enjoying creating beach scenes with this little birds stamp from the Wetlands stamp set.
Sponged on Crumb Cake ink for the sand and Soft Sky for the sky and up to the sand.
Masked off the horizon and sponged on Pacific Point for the ocean and then added a little to the top and edges of the sky.
Added waves with the uni-ball Signo Gel Pen. I sometimes really fight with this pen and try all the tricks. I find that putting in in my pants pocket for a while before even starting my card and warming it up works the best.
