On the Beach

Time has just flown this week, and it is time for the  One Stop Craft Challenge,  and this week it is about life On the Beach.

I have finally mounted up a batch of Crafty Individual stamps I have had for ever, so am making use of them.  This one suits our theme perfectly.

I have used distress ink on silk card which guves a slighly softer colour.  I dried this and then stamped over with black archival ink, which I then dried as well.  The background papers are fairly muted, and are all from the Raspberry Road Travelogue.  I have added some small Petaloo flowers to finish off.

This week we are sponsored by

and one lucky winner will receive 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set of their choice.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

ColorLab - Colour challenge -  I used the colours for the challenge
Cards und More - I followed the sketch
Creative Craft Challenges - Summertime
Digital Tuesday - I love the sea - include a digital element (my papers are digital)
Craft us Crazy - Anything goes
