Imagine Summer by the Sea

Imagine Summer by the Sea

On this first day of summer, I thought it would be appropriate to use the Summer by the Sea stamp set for Kristina Werner’s 12th color inspiration challenge. Summer by the Sea is one of those sets that never seems to make it back into the SU! catalog, but it is still available for purchase, as are all the other items on the dormant list.

I had a hard time trying to bring Sahara Sand into the card, and it ended up as a large circle on the inside of the card (but still visible). The image was stamped in White StazOn ink on acetate, and this was adhered behind the circular window in the card. I added a So Saffron circle around the image, and drew little dots with my white gel pen.

The sentiment is a white rub-on from the Eastern Elegance set, and the ribbon is part of the Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals.

Thanks for stopping by!
