Waterfront


While refilling my ink pads recently, I decided to have a play with them and create a tropical scene. I used the SU! Waterfront set (2018) to create the scene, embossing the Versafine-stamped silhouette images with clear detail ep. I sponged color on using my Distress inks, adding a couple of hand-drawn scribbles with a black Copic marker. I stamped the sentiments, then die cut the panel and card base with Lil Inker stitched rectangle dies. I wish I was on an island like this right now - far away from this crazy world we've been forced to exist in.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Oh my what an absolutely breath-taking scene you've made here Carol! I'm with you on being at that little island right there as well! What a fantastic view it would be! Great idea to create backgrounds while filling those ink pads! Right now I'm running out of those Copic refills and wish those would come back soon! Thanks for the inspiration today!

That's a lovely scene. I can never get Waterfront to play nicely for me, so I appreciate yours the more. From the depths of a Southern Hemisphere winter, that scene looks particularly appealing! Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
