Good day everyone! It's another hot and humid day here in New Brunswick. It's way too hot to be in my craft room upstairs so I've been crafting a bit downstairs. It's a bit inconvenient as I always forget something I need so I'm forever going up and down the stairs. Which makes me all hot and sweaty. Kind of defeats the purpose. Oh well. I've got a card to share with you today that I really love. It's probably one of my husbands favourites too.
I've wanted to use some sea glass in one of my cards for a while and I came up with this idea. I stamped my sentiment (Fiskars, Simple Expressions set) with black StazOn right onto the sea glass. I took a piece of kraft card stock which I tore a strip out. Then I stamped my sand dollars (Studio 112) in versamark and embossed in white on the two torn pieces. I masked a bit where there is the two sand dollars. I did some splattering of white and gold acrylic paint. (Looks kind of polka dotty to me. LOL). I made a card base I (turquoise mist, Bazill Basics) and put a white panel on it. Then I put the torn kraft pieces on the white with foam dots, leaving a space for my sea glass sentiment and glued that on.
I'm entering this into a few challenges. CAS-ual Fridays has a polka dot theme going on right now. My splatters cover that, I think. CAS-ology's cue card is "Cool". One of our favourite ways to cool off on these hot days is a visit to the beach. This card is definitely beachy. And lastly, Addicted To CAS whose code word is Water. Lots of water at the beach! :-).
Well, hope your all having a great Tuesday! Stay cool!
Beaches are definitely COOL!ReplyDelete
I recently gathered Sea Glass -what a SUPER idea!
Maybe I will steal it (credit back to you of course- Ahaa let me pin this quick to I can do that )... Wow, this card fits onto several of my Pinboards (Life's a Beach, I wanna make this! and the Clean and Simple Cards!!) You can see I am excited... LOL
