At the Seaside

I love the High Tide stamp set. If you check out page 145 in the Annual Catalogue, you will see a few great projects made with this stamp set. I especially love how they have cropped some of the greetings to give even more flexibility to how you use this set. For my card today I used a full sentiment stamp that shares a great message of support.


When I started this card I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do, but I loved the thought of stamping the water in two colours. I chose Balmy Blue and Tranquil Tide for that. From there I added some sand hills and grasses using Crumb Cake. My birds are stamped with Grey Granite, and my sun was Daffodil Delight. I used an Aqua Painter and Daffodil Delight ink to wash the sky with sunshine. Since this was a scene from the beach, I embossed my background layer using the Seaside TIEF to conjur up thoughts of waves hitting the shore. I had a lot of fun creating this seaside picture. Why not give it a try for yourself?
