I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside.......

I've been out at a crop most of the day, so missed the launch of this week's Less is More Challenge this morning - #23 One Layer Card with the theme of 'Something with Legs'.   As soon as I got home, I just had to sit down and create an entry.

I used a set of stamps from Crafty Individuals, created an oval mask using a nestie then Distress Inks to make a one layer background .  I didn't want to achieve a smooth blend of colours, but more the effect of a patchy sky and sea, with just a hint of foreground sand, so used  Broken China and Faded Jeans, with Scattered Straw for the sand.

The Bathing Belle (with legs), sentiment and seagulls (with legs) were stamped with Memento Paris Dusk ink.

Thanks for popping by to check out my card, it's great to see you !

I love this too Wynneth! Using the nestie as a mask to add colour and leaving some of the image outside it is really effective!
