I have just finished my entry for this weeks challenge at Less is More. Ok maybe not that early but early for me! This week the theme is ‘I do like to be beside the seaside’. Actually I do like to be beside the seaside, we live only about 5 miles from the coast!
Inks: Archival jet black
Adirondack cloudy blue
Stamps from Creative Stamping magazine
white gelly roll pen
A4 white card blank
I used low tack masking tape and scrap paper to mask off a panel near the top of the card. With a stencil brush, torn paper and the blue inks I created the background, trying to make the sea part look as if it is rippled with small waves. I then stamped the figures and the words with the jet black ink and ran a micron pen across the top and bottom of the border. Finally I used the white pen to highlight the tops of some of the waves.
Today was the first day of school for the children in my class so it does seem odd making a seaside scene when the summer holidays are over! At least we had a fairly good summer this year, unlike the last couple of years which have been horrendous. Oh well only another six and half weeks until half term!
Thanks for popping in. Take care.
