I tried something new today. I used three different digi images by merging them in Word and now it looks like it could be one stamp. These images are by Make It Crafty. This is Ebony at the Beach, Sandy at the Beach and a Sandcastle. They are all colored with Copic sketch markers (B41, B45, BG53, E00, E01, E23, E42, E43, E97, E99, R27, R81, R83, Y13, Y21, Y23, YG03, YG06) and Copic Spica pens (Lemon, Melon, Sky Blue). The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is Basic Grey's Out of Print. The image is cut out with Spellbinder Nestabilities Curved Rectangle. The pink lattices are punched out with a punch from EK Success. The buttons are from my stash and the twine is from The Twinery. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and it is inked up with Regal Rose ink from Stampin Up. It is also punched out with a punch from Stampin Up.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
