Peaceful Sea

Hello friends and followers, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. I've just got back from a walk with my lovely Hubby to a local county park. We were up early this morning so we thought we'd blow off the cobwebs and make an early start. The weather is looking good today and the sun is shining, so lets hope it lasts.
The card that I'm posting today is one that I've made for the Less is More challenge.  It's a one layer challenge and the focus is on water.
The stamps that I've used are by Inkylicious and the inks are Memento Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa, Impress Pale Aqua and Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I started by using Ink Dusters to create the sea and sand,  I then wet the duster and dragged it across the sea as this makes the water look more realistic than just having a solid colour. The Windswept stamp and sentiment were added and I gently dusted round the edge of the top half of the card in Pale Aqua to create a soft border. I did add small touches of Stickles Crystal Ice glitter glue to create glints on this sea but unfortunately; this doesn't show in the photo. I'm quite pleased with the outcome as I think the colours work together really well. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back soon :)

Oh OK, we made cards just like this and I wondered. Wish I'd got the brushes now!

The Ink Dusters are fabulous for blending colours and making backgrounds, I use them all the time. I bought a brayer first but that was a bit of a non starter and I wasted so much card in the process! Thank you for taking the time to comment. Kindest regards :)
