sunset at sea ....

Well I'm back with another sea and sunset card. I do love to create these scenes. I love the sea and the colours of sunset and crating these transports me straight home to the beautiful island of Malta.


We have just spent a week there and I have observed a few sunsets at the beach. This is also the card I made for my husband on our 15th anniversary, he also loves he sea.


It is quite a simple card to make. I simple inked with distress inks and brushes through a circle with distress inks. I used a mask for the sun and squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, abandoned coral, tumbled glass and stormy sky. 


For the sea I used tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon, stormy sky, faded jeans and chipped sapphire.I added reflections with spectrum noir pencils.
The sandy area is inked with fossilized amber.
I added some waves with white pen and the glimmer with a clear wink of stella pen.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the sea set of stamps by Hobby Art.
I finished the card with a few shells, some pearls and a blue mat.


So I hope you like my offering. My hubbie sure did, Theresa xx.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
