Browsing through my Crafty Individual stamps earlier this week I came across this one which I haven't used for some time, I had mostly used it to make ATCs before so thought I'd try it on a card.
The background is from my ever growing stack of inky and painty paints of paper, this time its acrylic paints, doodled round the edges ( not very well!). I stamped the girls on another piece from the stack, loved that it just worked out that it looked like splashing water, and added the stamped sentiment (Technique Tuesday) the sequins were a freebie and were just the right colours. I'd like to enter my card into

  1. This really conveys the feeling of children having fun on the summer beach.

  2. Joan, this card is absolutely fabulous. For me, it just sums up what Summer should be in the sea on a sunny day. I love the stamp and it works perfectly with your sentiment and painted background. Definitely one of my favourites. Sandra :)x

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love it. The lumping girl reminds me of my god daughter. I used it on her 18th birthday card.

  4. A very pretty card and colours Joan.

    Have a lovely Sunday.
