By the Seaside


It's Sunday and who doesn't want to be by the water feeling the cool breeze on their face?  I can just smell the air now.  Anyways, I am playing along with a few challenges today, the Featured Stamper at Splitcoast, the Addicted to CAS challenge-water and the Little Red Wagon-CAS.
I started my card by first stamping the pier from Gina K then masked off the bottom part where the sand would be then rubbed on a brown Distress ink.  I moved the mask then applied blue Distress inks to the top portion of my piece.  I went back and splashed some water on the sand as well to add some texture.  When dry, I cut it into 3 pieces, mounted with pop dots and finally added the scoring lines.
Hope you have a great day and I appreciate that you came by for a visit.

Supplies:  stamp; Gina K, Mark's finest/ Distress inks/ Scorbug/ pop dots/ twine

This creation is absolutely breathtaking. The silhouette of the pier against the gorgeous color of your sand and water is amazing. Love how you applied the distress ink. I love the way you cut and popped the image, and the stitching is the perfect finish to this beauty. Made me go right over to Gina K to get that stamp set. It's out of stock. boo hoo hoo. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
