Life's A Beach

I seem to be in a "scene creating" mode. I created this using the "Cheeky Beach" stamp from The Greeting Farm.

I colored the image with Copic and Prismacolor alcohol markers. The palm tree and sun were both cut with the Cricut Expression using  Doodlecharms and Wild Card cartridges respectively.

The background paper are from "Paper Studios." Both the "gull" and "crab" stamps are from the $1 clear stamps at JoAnn's. The sun's "face" is stamped with Peachy Keen stamp #440.

The "beach towel" is a piece of burlap while the sentiment is from Create with TLC. I added Stickles, brads, bling and some highlights with a white Gelly Roll pen and Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" distress ink.
