I started with the sand image from High Tide stamp set in crumb cake and first stamped on to a scrap piece of paper so the ink would not be too dark on the card.
Next, in Marina Mist stamp the waves, in So Saffron stamp the sun ray image from the Amazing you stamp set. Using Chocolate chip ink stamp the frame of the beach chair on the sand and stamp the tree limbs. Using Night of Navy ink stamp the seat of the beach chair (since you are stamping in such a dark color over light you don't really need to mask the sand and waves but if you were stamping your chair in a light image you would need to place a mask and then stamp the seat.
Stamp the flowers from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum. I stamped the Just Breathe sentiment in Night of Navy in the top right portion of the panel. Lastly, I stamped the drinking glass from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Tranquil Tide.
Even though there are a lot of ink colors in this card it was fast to make.
