Happy Canada Day


Happy Canada Day!





Here is a card I made for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast today (Summer fun).  What is more fun then sitting at the beach on a beautiful sunny day and watching the kids build sand castles. 
My card is an easy one.  I created the bkg. first by rubbing ink onto my non-stick craft sheet.  I then sprayed it with water and gently rolled my paper into the brown ink first then the blue.  By bending the paper slightly, it helped to define the colours when I rolled it into the ink.  Next, I stamped the sand castle and coloured it using Copics.  I stamped the chair on a separate piece of cardstock and cut it out so I could pop dot it.  This is such a fun little set from Penny Black.  
Whatever you are doing today, I hope it's a good day.
Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
