Lizzie at the Beach

Hi everyone, 
We have a new challenge starting today at

and for Challenge #180 our host Shirley would like you to Make a Set.

We have 3 wonderful sponsors this week.
Doodle Pantry,
StampArtDesigns by Kathryne
 Digital Delights

I've chosen to make a card and envelope using a digi called Lizzie that Kathryne of 
StampArt Designs by Kathryne has generously provided.  She can be found here.


I added the flowers to my beach scene card because she is in beautiful Hawaii you see least that's what I imagined..(smile)

I masked the image, coloured the background using stipple brushes for the sand and sky.

The water was coloured with Copics as was the image.
The flowers are handmade using MS Hydrangea punches, sprayed with water and scrunched.

Design Paper is SU Coastal Cabana
MB Summer Border die
MFT Sun die
SU leaf die
Seam binding is an old Martha Stewart
Lace is from LOTV
Sentiment: SU stamp 
Large flower made using SB Blossom Two dies
