Tranquil days

Oh i do wish i was on that beach right now, it looks so calming, i can just imagine smelling the sea air and the breeze through my hair, oh well back to reality and the real life of work, work, work.

I bought some Tim Holtz craft resist card stock and i love it ive used my splodgeAway mat to blend lots of different inks over it to colour it, i also used a SplodgeAway meenie cog mask in the corner and sprayed it with dylusion inks. The sea scene was watercoloured used adirondack ink pads. the blue/white mat is whitewashed coordination's card which ive embossed using a stamps away mask then sanded back, i also inked through the hessian with walnut stain distress ink to give the net effect, i then used the hessian over the corner and attached a couple of nautical brads. Ive coloured the base card with tumbled glass and added a little definition by inking soft clouds in the background.
