Beach-y Birthday

  Good morning! How has your week been going? 
I've been on a roll with stamping and needed a masculine card this week. Nothing like a beach-y scene for a summer birthday!  I loved making the sponged background with Distress Oxide inks. 

Beginning with stamping the fence, I added embossing to the horizontal links. Love the way the fence image adds perspective to the scene. I also embossed the white ropes on the end post, and the sentiment. 

The posts and the bird images are layered tone on tone to give depth.

I'm playing with the Retro challenge again. I went searching for just the right stamp for the sentiment and came up with one from a very old set, Winter Woods. 

Retro Rubber Challenge 111

Completing the bottom line of elements was fun! Every beach scene needs birds, right? And a bit of white paint spattered randomly. Thanks for coming by!
