Lazy Days

It's time for a new challenge at
and the theme this time is
Lazy Days of Summer

For this card I have decided to use my Clarity Stamps. The back ground is done using 4 colours of distress inks then the tropical leaves has been stamped around the edge using green Archival.

The image has also been done using distress inks. The beach huts have been stamped in grey Archival and the tall grasses in brown Archival. I have coloured the beach huts with pencils. The word seaside is on a hand cut tag with die cut letter. I like the effect from using soft, hazy colours.

Grey Lady

It's Make My Monday challenge time again and the theme this time is

Pink and Grey

This card was created with some inspiration from a wonderful card maker Maria Simms and Clarity stamps goodies. She really is so enthusiastic and comes up with some wonderful ideas.

It's done using the Gelli press, grey distress inks and the Blossom stencil from Clarity. Then a bit of pink added to highlight the flowers and a lovely Clarity sentiment. It is really a quick and simple design but so pretty.

Please pop over to the challenge to see what the other DT member have created to inspire you.
