Let's Catch up ...

I love orange, yellow and turquoise .... makes me think of sunny, beachy locations.  Somewhere I would love to be right now.  Which is why I was inspired to make this mini card.

Easy to do and quite quick to do too.  I masked off some card and swooshed some Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade (love those names) distress inks on with a stencil brush, I wanted a nice soft air brushed look.  I stamped and cut out a little fish (unknown stamp company) and coloured it in with distress markers and then double embossed it to make it really glossy.

The starfish and sentiment are from a Hero Arts clear stamp set with fish that I wasn't keen on so I used a different fish (he had a sweeter face).  I drew the bubbles myself .... I know amazing artist that I am, ha ha!

I'm dreamin of seaside locations (not in Great Britain!!!), preferably somewhere exotic and hot.  That's because outside it is cold, grey, dark, drizzly and you would not think it was June 14!!!  Looks and feels more like the end of Autumn.  I think I'd like to emigrate.  I'm going to look up Palm Beach on googlemaps in a minute and fantasize about living there!!!

Thanks for stopping by ....
