Sandy Kisses

I'm starting off this week with a new stamp set (to me) from My Favorite Things, Beach Bear.   Everyone knows how I love the beach but this was my first 'polar bear' on the beach for sure.  

I started by stamping the bear on the blanket and the umbrella separately, then coloring them with my Copic markers and hand cutting them out.  Since the card challenge was 'Beachside' I elected to only use one image from this large set of stamps. 

Using a standard A2 card front, I glued the bear in the center and tucked the umbrella just behind him. Then I started at the bottom and added the tiny dots of tan shades to make the sand.  Next, working around the bear, I added several shades of blue for the water.  Then I worked from dark YG65 to light Y11 to achieve the shades of the sunrise.  Once completed, I returned this part to my Misti and added the sentiment stamp from the same set.

For the decorative edges, I used Gina Marie Designs, Labels Three for the image and for the coordinating orange mat.  For the card base I cut a coordinating aqua solid and put the fold to the left so that I could add the string and the fish charm.
