Hello, Friends! My family is headed to the beach soon and I can not wait to feel the warm sand between my toes and listen to the crashing waves! That is DEFINITELY what inspired today's card! All of these fun stamps are from Pink Ink Stamp Co -- the great Beachtown Fence, Beach Sign, and Sandy Toes sentiment. Let me tell you how this card came together (All bold products are linked below in the supply section): After stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, I tore a piece of scrap cardstock to use as a mask to create the waves. I placed the mask along the bottom 1/4 of the card, where I wanted the edge of the waves to meet the sand, then I softly airbrushed Copic B00 along the the edge of the torn mask. (I have moved the mask upward a little in the photo, so you can see where the airbrushing occurred). In all of my airbrushing, I am getting close to the stamped fence/images, trying not to get too much overspray onto the image ... This is my lazy way of not having to use a mask! You...

I hope you all have had the chance to try out Taylored Expressions’ beautiful new ink pads -- I’ve used them two different ways on this 8-inch scrapbook page -- for watercoloring the background and selectively inking the sentiment title! This page is about a wonderful milestone in our family … our oldest daughter received her driving permit this past Fall {sniff!} so, of course, it HAD to be documented! That great "Memories" frame I used is part of the Retirement Sale currently going on at Taylored Expressions so if you like it, you better scoop it up quickly! You can shop the Retirement Sale HERE. I hope you'll join me today over on the Taylored Expressions blog for all the details about this scrapbook page!

Wowzers... These cards are gorgeous, Julie!! Looks like I need some new watercolors!
Rebecca, No I havent sealed it. Considering Memento is a permanent ink, I dont think there will be a problem with bleeding. I may do some testing will report back with my findings. Thanks for the input! Sharon Harnist www.PaperFections.com Sent from my iPhone

My youngest daughter has always loved drawing and has taken a renewed interest in it again lately. To help nurture her talent, I customized a sketch book for her: To customize the cover, I stamped a variety of Pink Ink Stamp Company’s latest summer release of stamps all over the cover. I love all the beachy, summery images and hope these will help inspire my daughter over the summer! I added my daughter's name using Essentials by Ellen Basic Alpha: And since this is a sketch book, I thought it would be appropriate to keep the images stamped in just black ink. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and was very pleased with how well the images stamped out on the leather cover! Don’t you love all the fun, amazing details in these images?!! The book I’m using is a 6” x 8” senseBook. This book has a beautiful recycled genuine leather cover! The book also has thread binding, a red ribbon bookmark, 135 numbered index pages to easily keep your thoughts / sketches / drawings organized, acid-free wood paper, personal information page, red elastic rubber band closure, 16 perforated pages for easy removal, 7 pages of index for individual...
