Summer Days

This is my card on the
Dies R Us Inspiration blog today!

I have another "summer" card today.  
I stamped a scene using a "never been inked"
Sheena Douglas Peaceful Lakeside stamp set.

Using  Tim Holtz Distress Markers,
I water colored the image.

A few fun "details" were added using 
for the Lighthouse, Ship's Wheel and the Anchor.
I cut the lighthouse twice,
once from a navy blue card stock
and again from a recycled piece of packaging,
then offset it a bit.
The anchor was cut from a silver shimmery paper.

No beach scene is complete without a few beach birds, 

A piece of twine was tied to finish it off!

Don't forgot to visit Monday-Friday, as we have a new
inspiration creation each day!
