Sand, Sea & Sun

Oh my goodness--I forgot the Impression Obsession challenge, Ocean Breezes, was about to close!  I had my card done days ago except for adding the sailor knots & attaching it to the card. The quote is an IO stamp (C5159) & certainly is fitting when you think of the ocean.  I don't have ocean themed stamps so I used Distress Inks frayed burlap, salty ocean & scattered straw to represent sand, sea & sun.  The panel is covered with shimmer mist giving a gorgeous shine & reminding me of the sparkle you see on the sand & sea when the sun is shining.  I pierced a simple border for interest.  My sister loves going to the beach, so this will probably go to her.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  1. Hello Greta,
    Wonderful palette, and it does represent the seaside, especially by adding the knots on the twine. The card looks great.
