For my card I used a digi from Whimsy Stamps called Beach Gnomes and I printed it on Crafter's Companion Neenah ultra smooth paper, cut it out and then coloured it with alcoholmakers.
For the card base, I masked off the beach first and applied Distress oxides Tumbled glass in the lower right corner, splattered it with water, but I doubt you can see it, Tumbled glass is very light.
Then Masked off the sky/sea and applied Antique linen for my beach, added a few
dots with markers as if sand grain.
The sentiment is from Skull and Cross buns and I stamped it with Versafine Clair ink.
Mounted the gnome with foamtape on top.
