Love on the beach

   I love this image from Sassy Studio Designs called Valentine's Honey. I coloured her using Promarkers and then cut the image out using an essential pin dot circle die from Tattered Lace. The sky was coloured using a Spectrum Noir pen and the sand is Flower Soft. I then used two strand of embroidery thread for the running stitch around the edge of the circle after which I matted it onto core'dinations cardstock which had been cut out using a pearl die from Tattered Lace.
   I used paper from Papermania for the background of the card matting it onto white card and then outlining it with silver candy strips. From blue core'dinations cardstock I used the Tattered Lace parasol die to cut a sun umbrella and this I matted onto sand coloured core'dinations cardstock before shaping it slightly and attaching it to the card. I then attached the image design using foam pads. Lastly I cut letters using Tattered Lace dies and glued these round the edge of the design to form a sentiment.
