“Relaxing by the Sea”

Seaside or Beach
is our theme this month at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Living by the sea, there is always so much you can do: whether it is rugging up and walking the beaches in blustering winds (good for the legs) during Winter,  walking the dogs, coffee at beach cafes with friends while listening to local bands playing, rowing whaleboats, cruising around the harbour on yachts and relaxing with a wine, kids playing at the beach playground, watching the tuna boats come in and showing their haul for the day, or laying on your beach towel on a hot Summer’s day and watching the surfers do their thing.
There is always so much going on!
So for this challenge I decided to get out my surfer stamp and show a relaxing scene.  
To me, even though it is so busy sometimes down by the sea, what I like the most is the relaxing side of it, and I hope this is how this card makes you feel.
 It is a surfer checking out the waves at the end of  Summer’s day, as the sun sets over the ocean.  Deciding whether to go in just one more time.
The background was done with Archival re-inkers and highlighted with some distress inks.
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you enjoy my card.
