Relax...

Pam posted a photo on 365 Cards today as our challenge.

We were to look at the photo, and see what it made us think of. The things that really called to me were the vivid blue in the shower curtain - it made me think of water, and all of the white furniture, floor, and ceiling! The white made me think of an Adirondack chair...and...of course - the chair made me think - relaxation!

Let me know what you think!

Here is the photo:



Here is my card:



Stamps and Papers: The Angel Company
Ink: Versafine Black
Sand: Paint samples from our local big 'box' store!
Misc: Black Gelly Roll Glaze Pen, Stardust Gelly Roll Glitter Pen

Have a great day!

Oh this makes me just want to relax and have a little something to drink that has an umbrella.

I'm hoping the beach will be like that when I go on Sunday, how relaxing! I love the effect of the torn edges for the water and sand. Fabulous work!

Suzanne said...

Great job! My eyes are immediately drawn to the red cover up and I would have used ladybugs. Of course, I don't have girls so I'm always looking for a reason to do something girly

cute! Is the beach sandy-feeling?

Patti J said...

Yep, the beach IS sandy feeling Tam! If you go into L---S, look in their paint sample row (by the Eddie Bauer, Martha Stewart side) and there are tons of colors with this rough finish - too much fun to NOT play with!

Pat said...

well done!
Hugs xx

I love this card! What I wouldn't give to be sitting in that chair on the sand. Maybe a trip to the beach is in my near future...

I love the way you did the sand with a paint sample. Clever!
