I chose blue and used only two shades: Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel. It was also a first outing for a new set Beach Happy from the Occasions catalogue.
The deck chair has stamped stripes but the umbrella is paper pieced.
The chair and umbrella were masked off and I sponged over some Balmy Blue. After creating a horizon line with a Post-it note, I added in some Blueberry Bushel to delineate sky from water. Then I added in some stylised wave lines to give the idea of water.
If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. Please message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below.
