Inky things

Have just sat and watched the bronze medal curling - How good was that?! Always great to see Team GB doing well - which is more than can be said for me. Still feeling grot but hopefully I will shake it off in the next few days.
Haven't really felt much like doing anything and so my share is something that was finished just when the 'dreaded lurgy' came calling!
My brain wasn't up to layouts so decided to make an 'inky' card.

The stamp set is from Inkylicious.
I stamped the lighthouse first , clear embossed and then masked it off.
Just made messy with DI's after that then overstamped the 'sand dunes' and grasses.

I made a bit of a mess of the sky I think - the darker blue shade in the middle is perhaps TOO dark but I'd already made my mind up on where the sentiment was going to be put so ignored the darker blue colour and stamped it anyway!
I used a piece of acetate to  give me the straight line for the sea instead of my usual post-it notes.
Finished with some twine and a few shells.

Viv, The sky is just perfecto. I wish I could do this kind of work when I was in the crapper. The sentiment in the dark area, that's life. PSSST! Come closer! BEAUTIFUL CARD! LOL.

Oh Viv I hope you feel better soon . Your card is delightful, how I wish I could do this technique but get frightened going freehand. Yes the curlers have done us proud and look forward to the men's final tomorrow.
