Today's card features Newton watching a sunrise over the Atlantic awaiting a day of fun at the beach OR relaxing after a day of fun and watching a sunset over the Pacific. To make this card, I sketched the scene and then water colored it. I traced it in black gel pen. I wasn't totally thrilled, so I used a sparkly gel pen over the waves and sunset to add a bit of glimmer. For the clouds, I retraced with a white gel pen to soften the black. For Newton and his beach accessories, I stamped and fussy cut. Then shaded with Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped the sentiment and attached the sequins and my fussy cuts. I punched the corners of the blue card stock and adhered my scene. At last I attached everything to the base. So no matter if this is a sunset or sunrise, Newton is having the time of his life at the beach!
