Summer evening



   Thought I'd have a go at creating my own background using distress inks. I inked the card first using a sponge and then randomly stamped shells from the seashell collage set from Elusive Images, now Chocolate Baroque, using distress inks. I then coloured in the shells with distress inks using a water brush. When dry I matted and layered it onto black card and then white card.
   The main image is from the seashore scene set of stamps, again from Elusive Images. I coloured it using Promarkers, apart from the sky where I used distress ink. I also matted this onto black card.
   The sentiment is stamped using one of the stamps from Flowersoft's second floral sentiments set. This I dusted with distress ink before again matting onto black card.

  8. Gorgeous card. Beautifully made and colored with the shadows and the sun's reflection on the water. Fab background and the mat and layering especially with the black layers. They really make the little dinghy sail boats pop. Thank you for playing along with the Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge.
