wishing for a beach...

We live very near Lake Ontario and this year the water levels are extremely high. 
This means beaches that I took my boys to for years are gone.
This card is hoping that they come back for my granddaughter in the future.
The base card is black card stock.
On a piece of white card stock I applied Gina K powder blue premium ink with an MFT Mix-ables “cloud” stencil and make up brushes.
To this piece I also stamped the birds from Avery Elle’s “Shine Bright” with Gina k premium black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I applied Gina K kraft ink with a stencil made form card stock and MFT Die-namics 
“Rolling Hills” and the make up brush.
To this piece I stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle’s “beside The Sea” with the black ink and trimmed above a few of the “dunes”.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the sea gull and the beach houses from the same set with the black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils.
These I cut out with a kraft knife and self healing mat.
I glue the houses to the cloud piece, drew legs for the seagull with a Pigma Micron 05 pen, glued the seagull to the “dunes” piece then foam taped the “dunes” piece to the card front.


  1. A stunning card Arlene - love the sand dunes and the gulls - such wonderful wee details, and the wee huts are so quaint.

  2. WOW...simply love your sweet card. Would love to be on the beach right now in one of those sweet cottages! Thank you so much for playing along with us at ATSM!
