CCCB #56 "By the sea"


Today is the last day to enter this weeks'challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog

And it's all about creating a card of project with items related to the sea.

A sweet and nostalgic photo inspiration:

I don't have a lot of  "sea" items in my stash. And besides that; I took me until last night to come up with an idea. Yes you could say that it has been a real challenge....And I hope that my card is good enough :)

 I used an image of the Graphics Fairy:

Papers from MY Minds Eye Stella and Rose (Hazel).
A ticket from June and a pearl from Pauline:

Flowers from Prima and Mulberry, velvet wings from Memrie Mare and a tag from June. The sentiment from Daisy Bucket Designs is stamped with Bamboo Leaves from Memento. Trim from Maya Road.

A few stitches, and I distressed the edges of my card and tag with Antique Linen.
The "metal corners" were a gift from Ros. Here is my card:

Till soon!

Weet je wat ik zo grappig vind? Dat je er ondanks Moby Dick zo'n elegante kaart van weet te maken! Dat "wilde" in je afbeelding en de serene rust die je kaart verder uitstraalt. Goede combi! Liefs, Ira x

How adorable, Stella! I really like your take on this sea challenge. I'm with you......I don't have much beachy stuff. Love the image that you found from Graphics Fairy, and love the angel wings and paper. Adorable stamped sentiment tag, too.
Stella, I love that your card was built out of gifts from friends to create something unique and beautiful. :) And how neat that your paper's name is Stella. ;)

Wendy ten Hove said…
Hi Stella!

Nou, volgens mij heb je perfect aan deze challenge voldaan! Wat een mooie afbeelding van de zee en een schitterend romantisch geheel! Alle details zijn weer super! Erg mooi gemaakt!
Hopelijk ben je lekker van de week aan het genieten, ook al is het dan wat onstuimiger dan de weken er voor. Ik vind het zelf niet zo erg de regen enzo, ik zie alles weer fijn wat groener worden en dat vind ik altijd erg mooi! Bij m'n auto springen er opeens prachtige klaproosjes omhoog! Leuk!

Ik wens je een superfijne dag!!
Liefs, Wendy
