Beach scene

Hi everyone! I decided to play around with this Monday's Mojo Sketch and pair it with the Beach challenge over at The Paper Players. Here is what I ended up with.

It took me a few tries to get my mojo going on this one.

Dock and bird stamps are from Gina K Designs.

I made the sand using Versamagic wheat ink and a dauber. The water is done using a dauber with blue inks from Fresh ink and colorbox. White foam for the waves was done using a stylus and Copic opaque white paint.

Sky is also daubered on with Memento sky ink using my Picaso metal stencil. The stencil has several areas that I use pretty often, the circle and the clouds get the most use tho.

Lastly, I added the shadows in the water using a black Prismacolor pencil. The starfish is from TAC and fussy cut out and popped onto the corner using some foam tape.

Ok, that's it for me today! Thanks for popping in!
