Just For Fun August Challenge

Wow!  Where is the summer going?  I can’t believe it is August already.  With a new month comes a new challenge at Just For Fun Rubber Stamps Blog. 

 For the month of August the challenge theme is “Sand In Our Toes”.  Think beach or ocean.

We also have an optional sketch we would love to see you use.

I recently visited my youngest daughter and we spent some time at the beach.  It is always so relaxing, with the sound of the waves.  This is one of my favorite places to vacation.  Great inspiration for my card.

After creating a soft watercolor background, I stamped the Palm Trees in black.  I wanted a dark solid black image so I actually re-stamped it using my handmade Misti, using a picture frame from Ikea.  This worked great.

The sentiment, How great to do nothing, was stamped in blue, and both pieces were layered on black.   

The card was completed using additional layers of yellow and blue.

Now it is your turn.  Make sure you visit the Just For Fun blog for all the rules and details.

Wonderful card. Love the palm trees in silhouette. It reminds me of California. Love that sentiment too!

So pretty! I too love to listen to the waves. One of my favorite things! Your card perfectly captures the feeling of being at the beach.
