Making a splash

Helloooooo, Monday morning yippeeeee!! If i say it often enough I might believe it lol. Anyway before i rush off to work he's a very quick card made with a gorgeous freebie stamp from Papercraft Essentials. Although I'm still on my stash diet (well, ish) I didn't think a magazine counted.

I stamped the gorgeous quirky image (from Acid Drops and Whatnots) on a kraft card blank and coloured her with Graph'It markers (you really have to try these pens, the colours really pop compared to other markers). I masked her and roughly sketched in sea and sky using my favourite PanPastels. The sentiment was also a freebie with Papercraft Essentials.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bastel Traum: water
Creative Inspirations Paint: red white and blue
Eclectic Ellapu: celebrate summer sunshine
Penny Black and more: clean and simple

Its definitely not paddling weather here yet, in fact its hard to believe its the middle of June, hopefully summer sunshine isn't too far away. Well I'd better scoot off to work
Thanks for popping by, 
Claire xx

  4. This is gorgeous Claire. The swimmer looks great in the pan pastel sea. The kraft card really gives it a feeling of the beach and sand as well.
