"beside the sea, beside the sea..."

Over at Crafty Cardmakers the theme this week is to make a postcard with a beach scene and there has to be sea and sand.  Having just bought a Michael Powell stamp of beach huts I had to have a go:) So here is my take on the challenge:

My postcard is 6 x 4 and I used SU Marina Mist, Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Certainly Celery and sponged the colours onto the card to create the background. The stamp is almost the width of the card, fortuitously,  and I inked it up with black Memento and stamped it across the centre. I added some colour to the stamped image and the sentiment was created with my Xyron digital runner.
Thanks for visiting me and I love to read your comments:)

What a lovely stamp, Val. I love how you coloured your seaside scene, which has such a lovely nostalgic feel to it.
I have one of those Xyron runners, I have never been able to get the perfect results you have. Your sentiment goes so perfectly with your image. Fabulous card! x

How lovely to see you here Valerie at CraftyCardmakers and with such a fabulous card. I have that stamp and am scared to use it am afraid I wouldn't be able to colour it ( I have tried several times ) your colouring is perfect and the attention to detail amazing I appreciate it all the more because I know how tiny the images are. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Crafty Carmakers and good luck.
