Wet and Dry - Sand and Sea

This month's Rebel Challenge on Rogue Redhead Designs is "Surf and Turf - Wet and Dry Embossing". Fun, right? Gotta go rogue with this one!

I decided on a stair-step card so that I could create a beach scene with my Beach Babes stamps!

I stamped the sandy beach background on patterned paper with Tea Dye Distress Ink and clear embossed the result. It gave the "sand" some great depth and texture. I then dry embossed some sky and sea and added it to the back panel. After that, I stamped my figures and colored them with copic markers, attaching them to each "stair" of my card.
