Beach themes are definitively my favorite, there is something about the colors, the smell of the ocean, the sun shining, the sky... I could go on and on. For Friday Mashup I masked the sun and the sand, added a palm and also stamped it in green ink and cut it for a more realistic look. I off set the palm leaves a little to give it the illusion of a shadow from the sun. The striped paper was created with a new embossing folder I got which I love. I inked the folder, than ran it through the big shot. The sketch from Deconstructed Sketch was fabulous for my "beachy"card. Enjoy!
