By The Seaside

Hi everyone, today starts a new weekly challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz.
The  challenge chosen by Jan is By The Seaside.
Please check out the wonderful creations by the Design Team.
I had great fun making my card for the DT gallery.
By no means could this be called a quick card, but you know 
when you just go along and the ideas keep flowing? It just kept
growing and growning.
I started with an 8" sq card.
I used three blue shades of TH Distress Inks, patted onto an 
A4 piece of watercolour paper. Sprayed all over with water. Allowed
it to form the globules of coloured water. Placed the A4 paper
over onto the inks, Dried with my heat tool, repeated the process
several times. This formed my background for both panels. 
The larger panel on the right was enhanced adding printed
beach huts, greetings and bunting from Crafter's Companion CD Halcyon Days.
The left panel was enhanced using all stamps from Sweet Desire 
Lighthouse, yachts and birds. The lighthouse and yachts were 
stamped again, coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged onto the panel. 
Both panels edged with Black Soot  DI, matted onto black card. 


  1. Wow! Your card is so fantastic, hun!

    Hugs and kisses from germany,

  4. Wow! It may be a card for a guy, but it is a beautiful creation, Caz! Gorgeously colored, and full of the freshness of a sea breeze, and the cuteness of those little changing bungalows! I especially like that you put the two scenes on different panels and layered them. Fantastic design! hugs, de
