Sea Breeze

Good afternoon,

I'm enjoying keeping my cards nice and simple at the moment.
This card uses stamps from the Hobby Arts "Harbour" clear stamp set. I've stamped them onto water colour paper and used Derwent Aquatone pencils to colour. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages".

Many thanks for looking. Enjoy the weekend ahead.

Hugs, Clare xx

'Simple' or not Clare your creations are always very professional. I love the 'faded' bluey greens which make me think of a cottage by the sea.

Keeping things simple works beautifully, Clare and is an art in itself isn't it. We all get carried away with adding stuff when we don't need too.
I love the cool, crisp look you've created with this. Perfect for the Summer.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Clare,its beautiful, I think we all have fazes, I seem to be going through a fussy stage at the moment, if you know what I mean, cant seem to get enough on, but then I look at this and think I'll go simple next time as I love it so much, we will see!
hope you are having a lovely evening, and are heading for a great weekend.
