Beach Scene Tutorial

Good Saturday morning!  I had a great time working in the Rubbernecker booth at the Orlando Stampfest a couple of weeks ago and demonstrating how this beach scene tutorial using my Kittie Kits Beach Master.  So many people responded that they couldn’t believe how easy it was to create the scene  using  blending tools and a few inks and stamps.  I thought it  was a perfect project to add to my tutorials.
