Relaxin' Beach Day
I was not sure about this sketch - lots of layers, and I must admit to some re-doing as I tried to follow which layer was over which! I do like the result. I used an inspiration challenge (see below), going with the chair and an impression of a beach. I also incorporated a new technique - "splash". I do not have any of the product, but followed the idea Chris gave - use Walnut ink. I sprayed as gently as I could - still got some globs, but managed to make it look a bit like sand - I sprayed on white and should probably have used beige cs. I cut the middle strip with ripple edging scissors to convey an impression of dunes. Some wispy clouds are visible on the blue sky. I used blue dp for the square layer which I embossed with distressed stripes.
