"Picture" of Us at the Beach for OCCC

Hi! I finally hung that picture of us at the beach. What do you think?

Ha! This was created for the Our Creative Corner Challenge. The image was received through a PIF from NurseChrissy (thanks Chrissy!)

For the "wall" I stamped the Stampendous Marble Texture Cube lightly around the edges of the yellow paper (stamping off on scratch paper first). Then I sponged a Going Grey shadow under and to the left of where the picture frame would be.

The "frame" is made by scoring the corners with my Score-Pal. I then masked those score lines with post it notes and sponged Chocolate Chip ink into the corners (so the score line did not get any ink). I also sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the edges of the Chocolate Chip layer.

I used Michelle Zindorf's brayered sky technique to make the sky, ocean and beach on Whisper White. I then colored the ladies with Copic Markers, cut them out, and attached them to the beach. I chose this method to keep the colors very bright! (Emboss resist would have dulled them a bit). I sponged some Going Grey on the top and to the right to create a shadow from the frame.

The "framed pic" is up on popdots and I used a brad as a "nail" and drew in the picture wire.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Bazzill
Ink: Going Grey, More Mustard, Cool Caribbean, Taken with Teal, River Rock, Chocolate Chip
