Beside the Seaside

This is my second card of the day.  Making this card brought back wonderful memories for me.  My Aunt and Uncle lived in Christchurch in Dorset.  Mum, Dad and myself would visit them every year and we would always spend a day at Boscombe and take a stroll along the pier.  I used to love spending the day making sand castles and eating ice cream.  My dad would sit in his deckchair with his trousers rolled up and so I always think of him when I'm using this stamp set (U-Mount Create-A-Scene Unmounted Stamp Set - Seaside.) The blue background card was stamped in Memento Desert ink using Inkylicious Seascape Memory stamps.

I used Ink Dusters to colour the sand, sea and sky with the following inks:
  • Impress - Cerulean Blue
  • Distress - Stormy Sky
  • Memento - Desert Sand                    
I stamped the pier and other images using Versafine Onyx Black and then water coloured them using various inks.  I ensured that the guy in the deckchair had a little more pink on his knees and tummy to show his sunburn! I finished the card by using Woodward Fluffy Stuff to create the sea foam.
