Seashores & sunsets

Welcome back and the weekend again! More from our weekend at the lakeside and today's card pays homage to both shore life and the amazing sunset (as well as a nod in the direction of the forthcoming season ;)) we were privileged to see ...

Isn't that just gorgeous? The sky, I mean, although I quite like the card as well ;)

I've used the forthcoming Pretty Print embossing folder that features in the new Autumn/Winter catalogue out  from 29th August (being  demonstrator means as well as 20% off catalogue prices I also get to see and play with new products before everyone else - another perk of being part of the team! If you fancy being first too click here and take a look at all the benefits!)

Starting with Early Espresso Core'dinations as my based card and layered it with Venetian Romance designer series paper. Then taking a piece of very vanilla, I've embossed it with Pretty Print and then sponged the embossing with early espresso ink using a sponge dauber and then sponged more tangerine tango, pumpkin pie, crushed curry & crumb cake over the edges and then to add even more dimension I've stamped in By the Seashore in coordinating colours.

Another piece of Tangerine Tango on top, distressed and ripped and splatted with Gorgeous Grunge was overlaid with more very vanilla, again Gorgeous Grunged and then the seashell was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and then clear embossed. The gratitude stamp is from Fabulous Phrases - lots of nifty little phrases for every occasion.
