Wish You Were Here

Hello Everybody,

just a quick post today, the weather is too nice and the BBQ is waiting ….

We have been very lucky this bank holiday weekend, the weather is great, and the beaches are packed. At last we were able to spend some quality time outside.

The flower pots are weed-free and our courtyard garden looks lovely and inviting.

The card I want to share with you today has a bit of a seaside feel too …

Wish You Were Here

It is another entry for the colour challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, just a quick reminder of the colours I needed to focus on Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Pacific Point by SU (bright orange, pink and blue). I used the Stampin’Up! colours.

I used the three colours to sponge my background on which I stamped the silhouette image using black Versafine ink before framing the ‘picture’ with a die-cut blue frame. I cut a square of blue striped paper, mounted it on a square white card blank and added some pink faux stitching along the edges. I then stamped the ropes, starfish and shell in orange and blue ink and sponged the images for added colour, before cutting out.

The sentiment is stamped on acetate using  black StazOn ink. I then assembled the card as above and added a stamped and cut out seagull to finish.

Enjoy the sunshine!!!

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
