Here is what I came up with.....

Those of you who are regular visitors here, have seen that I am loving playing with my new Color Burst powders from Ken Oliver...they are such a great way to build up quick backgrounds...

So I started with one from my ever expanding stash....

Then some stamping...

Some colour

Some scenery and depth

 

It always amazes me how the picture builds up....

Some more stamping...All these stamps are from Claritystamp.....

And some more colour and the card really starts to take shape....

I do love my charcoal pencils.

All that we need now is that obligatory seaside item.....a postcard....

So here it is.

Just finishes the whole design off...do hope you agree...

I must dash , I am just about to get in the car and head up to Scotland....ready for tomorrow's workshops,

Have a wonderful weekend.....

To all my lovely friends in Glasgow....see you soon....

Much love and hugs all,

Jo. xxxx

  7. Loved this the minute I saw it... I haven't got any of those clarity stamps you have used, think I need to go shopping I especially love those beachuts, they remind me of the beaches of my childhood. Think you may have given me the confidence to have a go with those Ken Oliver Color Bursts too. . .oh dear. Hope you had a good time up in Scotland xxxAnnie
