The Limited Supply Challenge on SCS today is to create a card representing summer and using limited layers and embellishments.  I didn’t have to look far to find some fun images to create a summer beach scene.  Nothing says summer to me like sand dunes, sea oats, a lighthouse and the ocean. I found all those images in my newly released Kittie Kits Fun in the Sun set found at Rubbernecker Stamps.


I masked off the border of my Fabriano 5″ x 5″ note card. I stamped the light house with Versafine black and watercolored with Distress Fired Brick and SU Going Grey.  I sponged on Distress Antique Linen for the sand dune area and then stamped the small sea oats around the scene with Adirondack Lettuce. I filled in the sand texture with small dune images. I masked off the sky area with a strip of paper and sponged below it to create the water line with Cool Caribbean. I removed the mask and created the sky by sponging on lighter shades of Cool Caribbean and using a hand cut piece of scalloped watercolor paper as a cloud template. I lightly filled in the sky with a light shade of Banana and then stamped the gulls in black ink. I removed the border masks and applied a simple grosgrain ribbon for embellishment. I love the outcome of this project.
