Ocean Edge

Hello.  Welcome.  I decided to play again with the lovely sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This one has really got Mr Mojo's attention!

I am really pleased with how this turned out.  I have used CC Designs Sand Castle small stamp and also their double stitched circle dies.  I stamped the sand castle on white card using Potting Soil archival.  I cut the circle and coloured with distress inks and my waterbrush.  I cut a circle of gold mirror card and also a couple of gold mirror card stitched tags using a Simon Says Stamp die.  I smooched Salty Ocean DOx on my white base card, added a piece of Marianne Design patterned paper and some nautical ribbon, the mirror tags, the main image and some blue pearls.  Let's go to the beach!!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  10. Great card. The sand castles look so lovely and the sky is fabulous.

  11. You got such a great 'sandy' effect on the castle (I wouldn't have any idea how to do that) and love the streaked 'sky' you created for the background. Such a fabulous card for our challenge, so glad you joined us!!

  12. Your castle looks like it's made out of a real sand. Cool!! :o) Thank you so much for playing I Love Math Challenge. xx
