Craft A Scene - By The Sea Week 1

Another month has gone by so quickly, and here we are in June already. I'm glad to say that at least the weather is gorgeous today, if only it would last. A new month means a new challenge over on the Craft A Scene blog, and this month we're asking for your scenes to be By The Sea. For my card I've used some stamps that I brought some time ago from Joanna Sheen, and this particular one has never been inked before, which is a shame because it's such a lovely stamp. I started by stamping the images onto some white card, then masked off the images. I then place acetate at the top and the bottom of the card leaving a small gap in the middle for the sea. Using a brush and distress ink I brushed across the middle, then turning the top down with a lighter blue ink and a mask to make the sun I brushed across the top part. I then reversed the mask made for the sun and coloured the sun using a bright yellow. Last of all I turned the bottom mask up and coloured the sand using two tones of yellow. I then used a white jellyroll pen to make a foam along the seas edge be for removing the masks. I coloured the rest of the images in with promarkers, and added a Happy Birthday stamp. I know that the design team have made some super scenes for your inspiration over on the blog, I hope that you have time to pop over and take a look and maybe join us this month.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

A lovely nostalgic seaside scene - don't dress little boys like that any more do they?? I can remember my brother wearing something similar many moons ago.
