On the beach

This card is made for a Round Robin I'm taking part in, I know its been received now so its safe to blog lol. Its the first round robin I've taken part in and I think its a great idea. In fact until recently i didn't know what  a stamping round robin was. For any other novices, you make a card using  and send the card and stamp on to the next person on the list etc etc until it gets back to the person who started it off. We're using a stamp by Pink Cat Studio, isn't it fab - just perfect for summer cards.

I've stamped the image on to silk card and then masked it before brayering the sky, sea and beach using kaeidacolour ink pads.I then coloured the image with promarkers and added some highlights to the sun and beach - promarkers are so different to use on silk card. The image is matted on some blue card. The Elusive images sentiment is stamped on a scrap of card brayered with the same colours. Sorry the pic is a bit wonky, I need to get some batteries for my camera so I've had to scan it and my scanner is very temperamental.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations: Summer Lovin
Crafty Catz: Summer time
Bee Crafty: at the Beach
Alys Sunday Challenge: Under or by the sea

Just looking at this card makes me wish I was sat on the beach, the weather here is so temperamental lately and work is so busy it would be bliss to escape. Thanks for looking, I hope this card brings you a little sunshine too
