Inkspirational Challenge - Beach Photo


Our new challenge at Inkspirational is to make a project inspired by this photo:



For my DT card I brayered a mix of shades of blue ink onto glossy card and cut the card into 3 sections. I die - cut  a palm tree on my electronic cutting machine and stamped the sentiment (unknown brand). The slight wonkiness of the word 'here' was entirely deliberate - just didn't want it to look too perfect like a Hallmark card! - no honestly, it was deliberate!

Please come over to Inkspirational . We have fabulous card from our DT and a wonderful Guest Designer, Lucille , and we'd love you to enter our challenge this fortnight.

I'd like to enter:
Stampin Royalty  by the sea
Eclectic Ellapu  by the sea
Sparkles Forum sun, sea, sand

  5. I wish I were there, too! A lovely card, Marina, with the pretty shades of blue that create a perfect backdrop for your palm tree. The tilted 'here' is wonderful, as it follows the movement of the tree's leaves. Love this!
