Clarity Stamp Challenge 5 Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Here is my entry for the  'Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside' Clarity Stamp Challenge.
It was inspired by a greetings card of 4 deckchairs looking out to sea.

I've used the Clarity deckchair and one of the seagull stamps  Then some distressed inks for the sand and sky and Promarkers to colour in the deckchairs.

Wild West Balloons

It's been a while since I've had time to blog.  We're well into the preparations for our Holiday Club starting in 9 days time and  I've also been busy making a scrapbook for our youngest daughter's 40th birthday.  The theme for the birthday was The Wild West.  I'd like to thank Janet Pring for the inspiration for this card.  We made a very similar one at Clarity Stampers East but the colours I chose looked a bit too masculine.  For this version I stamped the forest ridge twice and lone ranger, both from Clarity Stamps.  I then masked off the top and bottom of the card, added a moon and path and then sponged the sky and ground using a Hydranger Big and Juicy ink pad.  I had some pink and blue striped paper which went well with the ink colours and I used this to decoupage the balloons.  I added the Clarity sentiment 'May all your dreams come true' and some gems to finish it off.  Inside the card I used the Clarity letter box kit to spell out 'Happy 40th Birthday.  It was lovely to be able to give her a card which linked with the theme of her party.
