Memories of summer

Time for a second inspiration piece for our Country View Challenge on the theme Sun, Sea and Sand chosen by Corrie. I have made a card with another piece of alcohol background on Yupo using Tim Holtz's Alcohol lift ink.

Seaside play

I'm showing this beach scene today as I'm too hot to contemplate doing anything but dipping my toes in cool water...

Some more seaside inspired makes... This time I used special folds cards to double my stamping domain so I was able to use 1 image on each side :

Seashells on the seashore

Today I'm showing one of the samples I made for Crafty Individuals Hochanda shows last week.  Last week I showed the CI- 497 Tropical Sunset (see my post here), now for the second one, CI-496 a beautiful large stamp full of seashells.

The call of the sea at Hochanda

Crafty friends, maybe you caught Crafty Individuals' shows on Hochanda on Friday at 3pm or yesterday at 10am. It featured new products, old favourites and samples created by moi… yes by me, myself with my fair hands!!! I bet you can tell I'm excited even from the other end of the wire...

If you missed either shows you can catch-up here and here the artwork was simply amazing, and I'm not talking about mine but the rest of the DT samples!

Sun, sea, sand and alcohol

With the sweltering heat no wonder we are thinking of holidays in the sun at Country View Challenges….

I wouldn't recommend throwing alcohol in the mix, but hey, I had to try my new supplies, fresh out of Tim Holtz' release. I tested the Alcohol Lift Ink and I am now sharing the results of my experiments.
