Beside the Sea in Pastels – Card Making

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well and enjoying the seasonal weather.

Thank you for your lovely comments and kind words on my recent posts. They are truly appreciated and I do read everyone of them.

I am still posting the Crafty Individuals’ Hochanda samples.

Here is today’s little share.

Apologies for the greyish look to this photo.

For the main focal piece I used a piece of water colour paper 350 gm and swished it around in some diluted Distress Inks and then stamped the images.

Loving these little charms

The photo above has been magnified to show the charm.

Crafty Individuals Stamps used:

Beside The Seaside CI 278
Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses CI 459
Seaside Treasures CI 272
Crafty Individuals Backing Paper Book 6 The Seaside
Seaside bronze charms (pk 6)

Thank you for looking

Take care,

    So pretty! Love the swished pastel colored inks…nice effect. and yes, charms are quite charming on a card 😉

      Thank you Marianne. Great news about Chapter 8. I am so pleased for you.
      The majority of the cards I make, using Crafty Individuals stamps, I send to Crafty Individuals for their TV sales promotions and they also use some of the samples for their show boards at craft fairs. To be honest, I don’t make a lot of cards for myself 😉 In the past if I have made cards for fun or for challenges etc., I have given them to a local man who sells them for charity.
      Take care, hugs Flo xx

    If I didn’t already own that stamp I would buy it! Fabulous make to inspire Hochanda’s viewers (and your readers…)

    I really love your seaside collection, the images and colours are just wonderful. Those charms really add a little something to the card without stealing the lime light from the images.

    This is so pretty Florence with it’s delicate pastel colours and I love the little burst of pink across the middle too. This all co-ordinates so beautifully Florence. The Seaside collection has always been one of my favourites and I only need to look at this card to know why. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

      Thank you so much Jannet. I love sea horses as well. I always like the fact that they carry the babies!! Having no children myself, I am not quite sure why, but it always amuses me 🙂
      Hugs Flo x
