High Tide…


Hello, Over at Time Out Challenges they have a pretty photo that inspired me to get crafty this afternoon. This photo looks like a perfect beachfront vacation spot and it looks so beautiful. I tried putting a teal chair on my card to match the photo but it just didn’t look right. I think it was blending in too much with the water.

Card Details: All of the stamps/dies that I have used for this card are from Stampin Up the only thing that is not is the stencil I used for my clouds, which is from MFT. I masked off the water and used Oxide inks for the base before I stamped on the ripples. The sand was masked off too, prior to the stamping over top.

If time permits I may be back in a day or two as I would like to make another card inspired by those great pillows. I have the perfect DSP to match. Hope you are having a great day! Nanc’

  4. Hi Nancy, love that our photo inspired you to craft and adore the scene you created. The chair you chose it the perfect colour. The soft clouds are so like the photo and I like you design with the rounded edge. I do hope you come back with another design inspired by the cushions! Thanks for joining Time Out x

  6. Well, this couldn’t be more perfect for our challenge!! This is such a well put together scene, want to sit there myself. Love the different blues in the ocean and how the beach plants are all bending in the breeze. And so cool that you had birds that conveyed being far away and closer in their size, such a cool effect. Fabulous card and so happy you shared it with us at TIME OUT!
