To begin, I cut almost all of the elements in Beach Scene Builder Die-namics from Ranger Watercolor paper then watercolored them with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush. Once dry, I spattered with clean water and more ink and set them aside.
Next, I created my sky using Lazy Day dye ink and Mini Cloud Edges Stencil on Sweet Tooth card stock then adhered it directly to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I added all the watercolored elements, most popped up on foam with a few adhere directly for dimension. The three boats from You Keep Me Afloat Stamp Set were stamped on No Line Coloring card stock with Extreme Black hybrid ink, cut with the coordinating Die-namics, colored with Copic markers, and popped up in the scene with foam.
