Crafty Individuals Project 5 - Seaside

In preparation for the summer, I'm showing my next to last Guest Design make from Crafty Individuals. We're all going for a summer holiday la la la...

A simple CAS card using the CI-284 Life's a Beach Girlfriends  stamp set and CI-459 Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses.

I stamped both images with black ink and coloured the image with alcohol markers. The sentiment from CI-459 Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses has been stamped with Kaleidacolor inkpad in Blue Breeze.

I considered making the mat more interesting by embossing and sanding the Core'dination cardstock but in the end I thought the less fussy the presentation, the better to showcase the stamps in all their beauty and I love these images!

And by the way, if you don't know the song "We're all going on a summer holiday" it's a very well known (in the UK at least) classic by Cliff Richards.

Only one more sample from my May Crafty Individual series, and I have kept the best for last so don't miss it! It will pop up on my blog in the next few days...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Monday Challenge, Addicted to stamps, SSS Wednesday Challenge, Rubbernecker and Penny Black and more challenges.
