Walk Along the Beach - Guest Designer Post


My name is Mary Ellen Driggs and my blog is Creative Time With M.E

I am so excited to be a guest designer for the Clever Dexter blog this month!

This month's challenge Sponsor is Oddball Stamps.

And the challenge for this month is Beach Bum.

As guest designer I was able to play with the Creepy Cute Big Eye Hula Girl Spooky Sue Image No. 247 from Oddball Stamps! With this stamp set you get a couple of images.

For this A2 sized card, I used stencils to create the background and ink. Also for where the ocean meets the beach, I put fabric applique there and heated it up. This creates a more realistic look. And for the beach cutie, I used colored pencils. And blended the pencils with baby oil. On my YouTube channel, there are videos on how I use colored pencils and blend with them. As well as a video on how I create such a wonderful cloud background.
