Happy Father's Day

Are you ready for another sketch from The Sweet Stop?  

 I used this week's sketch for showcasing & embellishing my image, Deckchair Dreaming from LOTV. The DP is from MME - Good Day Sunshine Boy {love this paper!!} and I used the same tiny dotted paper for paper piecing the fabric on the chair.  The sentiment I used is from Your Next Stamps - Scene Sentiments.  I double stamped the little bird, glass of lemonade and the newspaper and popped them up for dimension.  Oh, and the glass of lemonade was also given a thick coat of Glossy Accents.  But my favorite part is the real sand!!  I have been wanting to try using sand on my beachy cards forever and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!!  :)   To create the "shadowed" sand under his chair I dyed it with a Copic!!  It was super easy... Using white craft sand, I put a small spoonful in a ziplock bag and used 2-3 drops of E35 from my refill bottle.  I then just smooshed it all together until the ink had soaked into all of the sand.  I wish you could all see and feel it in real life...the texture is just so much fun!!  Be sure to use a good quality glue (such as what you would use to apply ultra fine glitter), to prevent the sand from rubbing off - 'cause you're gonna want to touch it!!  :)

Oh, Wendy this is adorable!! I love his fur and that sand turned out wonderful. I love how you popped up the bird and lemonade, such a nice touch. You asked how I did the sky on the hot air balloon card and I just used the markers B000 and B00 and just kept blending out with soft strokes. Thanks for all of your sweet comments.

the paper piecing of the deckchair is utterly effective as is the dimension you created with the little bird & the lemonade glass. Love the fact that the bear is grey rather than brown & that sand with the newspaper is just ....... well .... leaves me speechless. The way your hints of pink on the soles of the bear's feet & his cheeks pick out the reddish hues of the patterned paper is lovely too as is the cloud shaped theme running through the composition.
