The Beach Scene
- Cut the scene base using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and white cardstock.
- Apply an Eclipse tape all the way around the outer border of the base to create a mask.
- Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand area and Tumbled Glass ink to the water area using a stylus and foam tip.
- Create the cloud sky area using a cloud stencil and ink blending tool.
- Sketch in the sea oats using a green marker and then add touches of Vintage Photo ink on the sand at the base of the oats.
- Use your finger to apply touches of white embossing paste to the water area and the edge of the sand by dabbing gently.
- Apply clear glitter to the embossing paste while it is still wet.
- Attach the beach scene layer to the blue layer using mounting tape and attach both to the card base using double stick tape.
- Cut the Woody parts using woodgrain, green, black, white, orange and gray cardstock.
- Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to the green card sections using mini applicators to create the appearance of rust and age.
- Attach the woodgrain section to the car using glossy accents.
- Apply mounting tape to the fenders and attach them to the car base.
- Assemble the tire and wheel sections, attach them together using glossy accents and then attach to the car using glossy accents.
- Attach the orange surfboard to the top of the car using glossy accents.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the Woody and attach it to the scene base.
- Finish by cutting three flying birds, apply Pumice Stone ink to the wings using a mini applicator and attach them to the sky area using pieces of mounting tape.
This beach scene with vintage Woody is not quite as detailed with dimensional parts and pieces as I usually make but I liked the simplicity of it. The sparkly ocean in the background is pretty and the birds in the sky draw the eye up but the Woody is still the main focal point. It’s fun to add age and rust to the car image so it doesn’t look so perfect. Have you tried making sea foam on your beach scenes with white embossing paste and glitter. It’s really very easy and yet the outcome is so pretty. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
