These are from my Crafters Workshop Template Shorts Vee-dios. That is real sand on the area around the palm tree.
The background was brayered using Adirondack dye-based ink. This tree was done using watermark ink, which was clear embossed and then colored in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers. I think the sand bucket and the flip-flops really lends a nostalgic feel to this card. The sand is a mixture of butterscotch and ginger ink with a brown alcohol marker.
Have been meaning to share them, but my camera did not want to cooperate.
Here I was going for an embossed resist technique on top of an inked background that was embossed with gold powder.
The one on the left are the micro beads...love those. The one on the right is the shimmer chalks on top of a Tattered Angels spritzed background.
