My card is made based on the sweet memories my hubby and I have of trips to the beaches of Mexico and Florida with our grandchildren, walking with them and seeing them picking up sea shells and running to us to show them of to us. We and them will treasure this memories for ever.
Here is my card.
This stamp is at least 8 years old, I remember buying it at my local Hobby Lobby craft store after coming home from one of those fabulous and fun trip with the kids, this image of this little girl picking up sea shells just melts my heart, that is how I remember this little kids on those unforgettable vacations.
The stamp is from a company called Stamps Happen but I think it's discontinued because I could only find a picture of it on Ebay.
I stamped this image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and water colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. The shells to the left are from a retired Flourishes set called "Seaside Life", stamped, colored and fussy cut.
I apologize that I don't have a picture of the inside of my card, my only excuse is that the kids have been here all week and I've been busier than usual. I will update this post soon.
I was finally able to finish the inside of the card and take a picture, very simple but I've been super busy with this kiddos.
Here is the Retro Rubber Summer photo that inspired my card.
I hope you play along with us and remember that the stamps you use need to be at least one year old. For more inspiration, please hop over my team mates blogs.
