Ruggles Beach

Today, I created my first artist trading card! The theme is a summer beach. Our family visits this beach every summer. It is named Ruggles Beach. Ruggles Beach is on the shore of Lake Erie, Ohio. The photograph was taken in the late 1800's on the very beach we vacation on.

I LOVE the fun everyone is having in the photograph and how the men are entertaining the crowd with their pyramid!

This was a fun project, but a tiny bit rough because I was overly excited about using my distressing ink. The seagull is from a collection found at the october pumpkin Etsy Shop. Maybe you can try an ATC of your own tomorrow!
