Beside the sea with Nature Walk

I thought that I would enter the St. Luke's Charity Cards Challenge again this month but I'm a bit worried because I don't have any seaside stamps and I decided to improvise instead. Here is my card
I started off by sponging my sky with a scallop circle and Baja Breeze ink, the sun was also sponged in using Summer Sun. I tore some copy paper to make hill shapes and used them again to sponge in my sand dunes. The sea was done in exactly the same way only I used some paper that had been cut with a wavy blade. Finally some flowers from the Stampin' Up set Nature walk were stamped in the foreground and coloured using my set of 'In Colours' Stampin' Write Markers.
Hope you like it - I'm off now to put my camera batteries on charge as they have just given up on me! Bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. Yet another stunner here. The scene you've created immediately conjures up sea breezes so well done on your improvising.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  2. Would never have known if you hadn't said. It looks like a tropical island to me. Wish I was there. Great colours. Caz

  3. A gorgeous scene you have created using your inks and scallop circles..thank you for joining in our challenge over at St Lukes


  4. I didn't have any seaside stamps either so resorted to using a CD image but you hve improvised in a great way here - well done and very effective

  5. I really love these kind of stamped and sponged scenes and yours is absolutely gorgeous! Vx

  6. Wow! I am totally in awe - this is just so gorgeous - wonderful sponging to make a super scene. Thanks for playing along with St Luke's Charity Card Challenge. Hope to see you again soon.

  7. This is just brilliant - can't believe you did it all just with some ink and scraps of paper - sometimes out of nothing something wonderful grows :-D
    Thanks so much for joining us again!

    This looks like my kind of beach too...rural and quiet :)
