By The Sea

Look, Look! A challenge card to start the week. I had planed to get a lot of challenge cards done over the weekend but of course time just vanished before me eyes. But I did manage to get this one done for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog which has a fab sketch to follow.

I was dreaming of the seaside when I did this card you know, ice creams, that beach worn look and lots of Shimmerz sparkly water 🙂 and she just looks so happy and relaxed she must be on holiday!

Stamp – Whiff Of Joy
Ink – Versafine onyx black
Colouring – Promarkers; Copics
Paper – BasicGrey
Usual suspects – silicone glue; trimmer; double-sided tape
Other – Shimmerz paints – Under the sea and Celery; Acetate; Cuttlebug; Embossing folder; Buttons; Nail file; shaped scissors
