Summer is here and vacation time is here so many of us have the beach on the brain. Fresh air, blue skies, the sound of the water....relax. Doesn't get much better then that.
I created my card for the CAS Challenge at Splitcoast. It was a 'Day at the Beach' theme. I thought of my Gina K set right away. I created the blue sky and the brown sand by inking up my long, rectangle shaped acrylic block with Distress inks, sprayed with water and stamped. Really easy and quick to do. When dry, I stamped the pier with black Memento ink and mounted that scene onto a piece of black cardstock to accentuate the black silhouette.
The background was done by inking my Hero Arts stamp with Distress inks, sprayed with water then stamped. I like the watery look it gave to the chevron stamping and a good backdrop to mount the image onto.
Adding my card to these challenges:
Little Red Wagon- I NEED A VACATION
Crafty Boots- SUMMER HOLIDAYS
Love to Create- BRIGHT and SUNNY
