Down at the Seaside

I was so chuffed when the card I did for our anniversary was selected as a top 5 card in last month’s Claritystamp Challenge Blog, Mr and Mrs.  This month the challenge is entitled ‘Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside‘.  Luckily I had a special birthday card to do for a family member (not saying too much as the card’s currently en-route) and a seaside theme just fitted perfectly.

Having had a good play with my Gelli plate I had a lovely background ready to go, with an aperture for stamping into.  I decided to use Rosie and the film and fibre technique that Maria Simms demo’d at the Glasgow craft fair in March to make her dress.  A warm sun, some Spanish sea, a certain pet dog having a paddle and I’m really pleased with the result.
