The Tide Recedes

Hello,

I'm here today to share with you a card that I've made for this week's challenge at 'Less is More.' Their theme this week is a 'One Layer Sentiment.'

Before I start, I'd like to give a warm welcome to my newest follower.....Sid. and say thank you for joining me.

Here's today's card:


I've kept the card CAS and left plenty of white space as required by all the Less is More challenges.

The sentiment is by Inkylicious and the silhouette stamp was free with a 'Creative Stamping' magazine.  The sentiment and image are both stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.  I masked off the sun and used Ink Dusters to give a sunny haze using Adirondack butterscotch.  The sea was coloured with Distress Stormy Sky as a water colour and the sand was sponged with Memento Desert Sand. I used a white gel pen to create waves on the sea and then finished the card by using Woodware Fluffy Stuff to create the waves.

I'll be back again tomorrow as we have a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges but until then, I wish you a lovely evening x

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge#184 Clean and Simple
STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge - Anything Goes with an optional twist of yellow
