Life is a Beach

Posted on


Hi There Marcia here, my turn today.

Following the glorious weather over the Bank Holiday Weekend I thought I would share a summery card with you.  I am lucky enough to live near lots of beautiful beaches on the South Devon coast so the beach is a much visited location.

For this card I used The Imagine Design Create 6x6 circle stencils and Better at the Beach stamps.  To create the big yellow sun and give it texture I mixed some sand with a sprinkle of yellow Brusho and some structure gel.  I wasn't sure it would work but it came out just as I wanted.

For the sentiment I masked the stamp before inking to create my own sentiment, which can be taken two ways.  It would hopefully bring a smile to someone who is feeling a little low.


I completed the card by using some real shells and backed it onto a piece of Imagine Design Create Marbled Sea & Sky paper.  


I hope you like it.


See you next week.


Happy crafting x
