I also love this ribbon folding technique I learned from the Denami Stamps site, so I used blue ribbon to make the waves that are sitting just behind the faux sand. The sand was created by simply ripping the tops of two pieces of tan paper, inking them a little darker and layering them on top of each other. I have also created sand by using actual sand that is mixed with a glue for scrapbook pages, but it would have been to heavy for a card, so I stuck with the faux sand.
The base of the card is white. To get the cloud look I used a dabber from Tim Holz, dampened it and using a light teal ink I gently patted the top half of the card for the cloudy sky look.
I finished off the lighthouse with some black and yellow stickles and (to quote my grandson) Voila! Here is the final product.....

|Easy technique and can be used on any width of ribbon. Depending on how close you lay the ribbon will give you a different 'wave'.|
