Weather Together Beach Card
Being in the middle of summer here in New Zealand, I'd like to share with you my beach take on the Weather Together stamp set.

Hot Tips:
1) For the umbrella fringe: Simply cut an extra umbrella in Whisper White, stick it on the back of your coloured one slightly downward and snip all along. Easy as!
2) Use our new Watercolor Pencils (Bermuda Bay here) to shade a background on Shimmery White Paper. Paint over top of it with an Aqua Painter and let dry. Use the black Watercolor Pencil to draw the sea gulls.
3) Stick the umbrella handle framelit cut out upside down to make the pointed tip of the beach umbrella.
4) Layers are 9cm / 3 1/2" square.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Weather Together
Inks: Flirty Flamingo, Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Whisper White Thick, Bermuda Bay, Shimmery White, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Copper Foil Sheets
