A Day at the Seaside

Unfortunately the blog title is where I would like to be right now and not where I am. We certainly haven’t had many days warm enough to visit the beach and today is no exception as it’s been rather dull and overcast.

The blog title is also about my card for this weeks Less is More challenge, which is ‘Sand’.

I had some scraps out on my desk and some new card blanks I picked up from Anna Maries Designs on my trip to the Sincerely Yours Show in Portsmouth on Sunday. So it would have been silly not to have a little play. Here is my effort….

Beach Card (6)

I cut an aperture into the front of my card blank and placed strips of card behind it to make the sand, water and sky. I doodled a few birds in the sky and used a mask, ink duster and yellow ink to create the sun. The waves were doodled with a Quickie Glue Pen and covered with clear glitter. Lastly I added a Paula Pascual for Personal Impressions sentiment using Coffee Bean Brilliance Ink and a little boat made from scraps of card cut freehand with some scissors.

Now to me it seems CAS but I’m not sure whether it has enough white space, let me know what you think.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
