Beside The Seaside

Afternoon folks. I hope you are well and preparing for the chilly weather we are being forecast here in the UK.

I just wanted to share with you a few more of the samples I made for Sheena's recent shows on C&C. These stamps and the new Luminarte Silks have been such a joy to work with that the cards made themselves really.

This first one you may recognise if you saw the shows as I was very honoured that Sheena demoed a version of it.

It's such an easy card to make, just Chipped Sapphire Distress ink brushed out with water and then coated with the ice silks. The shells were black embossed and painted with the silks.

This second card is along the same lines but using Stormy sky and adding the ice silks to the shell embellishments. I love making these tone on tone cards.

And last but not least my favourite, the boat painted with H20's with the puffin, who can resist him. I blended the Ice and African Jade silks over the embossing folder in the background.

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Three absolute stunners, Lisa! I love them all. I only saw about three quarters of an hour from Sheena's shows and I saw your card being demoed. I didn't quite catch the very beginning, so I wasn't sure, but I thought it was one of yours. You are so talented - not surprised Sheena chose this one xxx

They are gorgeous cars Lisa - and those silks look amazing. Going to Sheena's workshop on 1st December so may just come home with some if I'm lucky.

Thanks for your comment on my birds of prey post and do let me know if you are planning a trip as we had a special offer and he said he would discount if we rang him direct and I have his number. It really was magic and we were there for 2 hours when the booking said it was 1 hour. Bridgemere is the biggest garden centre in the country and has plenty for all ages, not just plants.

Stunning cards Lisa. Love the images and the colouring - the effect of the Luminarte silks is amazing. (something else for the wish-list)!
Have a happy weekend - hugs, Sylvia xx
