After it dried, I placed masking tape down for the horizon line. I colored the sky by pulling color from the outside in using a blending tool and ink pad, leaving some areas light. A cloud template, cut from a die cut, is great for making clouds. Next, the ocean. I placed masking tape at the horizon line, and also to show where the sand will end. I used the same technique to pull color into the scene, using a darker shade blue.
For the sand, I laid down color with the same method and came back in using masking tape in the shape of small hills for texture.
Before I removed the masking fluid, I dabbed over it with a tissue to remove any wet ink and also made sure my fingers were clean. I used a combination of an adhesive remover and my fingers to gently rub it all away. After all the fluid is removed, you can see any spots that need a cleaning up or changing. I noticed that my blue chairs blending into the ocean, so I darkened the chairs. I also did not cover masking fluid completely over my male penguin, so I got some ocean blue on him. To clean it up, I went in with a blue marker for shading. As with cooking, it's not how well it comes out the first time, but how well you can recover from any mistakes. :o)
