Well, I have never been to a beach or seen the Ocean, any Ocean, so I was just making up what I thought it would look like! The image was so sweet, I have been wanting to use it for a long time, I just didn't know how to color it or what to do with it, it is very big! I got the image from a swap on SCS, I think it may be retired SU, but not for sure, the card stock is dutch blue CTMH that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the script folder and then sanded, I used copics, chalk, and distress stickles to color the image, I don't know why I think the sand needed glitter, I just assume it would sparkle in the sun, let me know if this is totally not true! LOL !!! Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week.
